Henry County may have left the Dutchtown gym with the win, but Aundre Reid put on a show.

Reid scored 40 points and was a halfcourt shot away from capping a stellar individual performance in an 84-80 shortcoming in overtime to Henry County last Saturday.

The generously listed 6-foot senior nailed seven 3-pointers and impressively threw down three dunks in the contest.

“It just felt like I could just throw everything into the basket,” Reid said. “I felt like everything I threw up was going to go in. I’ve been on a hot streak the past few games.”

(Prior to this game, Reid dropped 36 points on Woodland and 34 on Stockbridge.)

Unfortunately, the one shot Reid and the Bulldogs needed to go down didn’t. With 1.8 seconds left in regulation and the score tied at 71-71, Reid caught a long inbounds pass from Turquin Mott just past half court and lofted the ball towards the basket.

The ball rolled around the rim and out as time expired, leaving everyone in shock and Reid laying face down on the court.

“I told my teammates before the play that we are going home after this shot,” Reid said.

To maintain the momentum, the Warhawks scored the first eight points in OT and held Reid scoreless in the extra session.

“It was just a good job of denying him because we know he can score,” Henry County coach Vincent Rosser said.
