Two future Gamecocks had differing results in Saturday's North Carolina private schools state championships.
Men's basketball signee Anthony Gill came up short in Charlotte Christian's (N.C.) efforts to win its first state title in 10 years. National power Christ School (N.C.) won the Class AAA title 59-57 as Christian missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer.
Gill led Christian to a 27-6 record this season. He scored 24 points in the title game and grabbed a key rebound that gave the Knights a late shot to win the game. However, that wasn't enough to keep Christ School from winning its fifth straight championship.
USC women's basketball commit Tiffany Mitchell, a junior, scored 20 points in Providence Day's (N.C.) 46-35 win over Charlotte Christian. It was the program's second straight title and sixth in seven years.
Mitchell is already guaranteeing another title next year.
"We'll be back," she told the Charlotte Observer. "We're a young team. We're hungry. I guarantee it."
Providence Day finished 28-4 this season. Mitchell was named to the all-state team for the third straight season after the game.
