Ellet senior guard Trevin Carter scored 14 of his game-high 15 points in the fourth quarter, leading the Orangemen to a come-from-behind 49-44 victory over Hudson on Saturday evening.

The first half was low scoring. Hudson went ahead 18-17 on a layup by junior forward David Gentry with 1:30 remaining in the second quarter and held that lead at the intermission.

Gentry and senior guard Damani Ganaway scored 12 points each to lead the Explorers in scoring.

Hudson (5-7) came out strong in the third quarter and took their largest lead of the game at 30-20 when Ganaway connected on a 3-pointer with 4:15 to play in the period. The Explorers led 35-27 heading to the fourth quarter.

Ellet went on an 11-3 run to start the fourth and tied the game at 38 on a Carter layup with 5:30 to play.

Following a bucket by Hudson’s senior forward Peyton Koscho, Ellet junior guard Marjay Bickley buried a three to give the lead back to the Orangemen, 41-40, with 5:05 remaining in the game.

Ellet (11-2) never trailed from that point on. The Orangemen were able to control the ball for most of the game’s final three minutes and used clutch free-throw shooting by Carter and junior guard Levi Lovett to seal the victory.
