In the final Saturday game of the Wendy’s Classic, the host school, Portsmouth Trojans dominated the Manchester Greyhounds 77-52.

Kyre Allison finished just behind Reynolds with 17 points against Manchester. Allison was perfect from the free throw line, and also hit a three-pointer of his own.
D.J. Eley had a good night as well, hitting three three-pointers, and finishing with nine points for the Trojans.
The Greyhounds had two players in double figures, Frost and Thornburg. Frost scored 18 points, while Thornburg finished with 11 points for Manchester.
