Oak Hill Academy won two games this past weekend to extend the team’s current winning streak to 10 games and send the seniors out with a big win in front of classmates, friends and family on Senior Night.


The Warriors took down Bull City Prep from Durham on Friday by an 87-46 score.


Senior Cody Martin scored 25 points and snagged eight rebounds. Senior Rokas Gustys recorded a double-double with with 19 points and 10 boards. Caleb Martin added 12 points, Tony Anderson scored nine points, Terrence Phillips dished out nine assists and Rodney Miller had six rebounds.


On Saturday night, Oak Hill hosted Moravian Prep and sent the seniors out with a 73-53 victory.


Seniors Caleb Martin and B.J. Stith led the way with 21 points and 14 points. Anderson had 10 points and senior Jeffrey Uju scored seven in his first start of the season. Seniors Kem Ubaru and Shelton Mitchell sat out the game due to injuries, but were recognized for their hard work this season before the game started.


The Warriors now sit at 37-3 overall and are hoping to improve on it’s current national ranking of sixth.


Oak Hill has two regular season games coming this week, both at home. Elite Prep Academy will be the opponent on Tuesday and Combine Academy will wrap up the regular season on Thursday.


After a three-week spring break, Oak Hill will wrap its season up at the annual Dick’s Sporting Goods National High School Tournament, April 3-5, in New York City. All games will be aired on ESPN, ESPN 2 or ESPN U. The championship game will be played at Madison Square Garden.


This tournament features the top eight teams in the nation based on comprehensive voting polls. As of right now, Oak Hill is ranked sixth, but will most assuredly move up at least one spot after Chicago Curie Metropolitan High School, currently ranked second in the nation, had to forfeit each of its 24 wins for failure to meet the academic standards of the Chicago Public School System.
