Chester ends drought at Widener

Things haven’t gone quite well for Chester in the Jameer Nelson Classic recently. The Clippers had not won a game at the Swartz Center since they defeated Atlantic City in 2013.
Jordan Camper, Micahel “Man-Man” Smith and Jamar Sudan made sure that streak came to an abrupt end.
The trio combined for 42 points as the Clippers snapped a two-game losing streak and three-year drought in the Nelson Classic with a 56-48 victory over Pennsbury on head coach Larry Yarbray’s birthday.
Smith scored 10 and hit four straight free throws after the Falcons cut a double-digit deficit to 45-44 in the fourth quarter. Camper had 14 points, 10 rebounds and three blocked shots to earn MVP honors for Chester (5-2). Sudan led the Clippers with 18 points.
Also in the Nelson Classic:
Martin Luther King 44, Episcopal Academy 41 >> The Churchmen continue to struggle without leading scorer Nick Alikakos, who missed his fourth straight game with an ankle injury, which is the same length as EA’s losing streak.
Conner Delaney picked up the offensive slack with 20 points. He was named MVP of the game for the Churchmen (7-6).
In other nonleague action:
Ridley 44, Upper Merion 43 >> Damir Fleming hit a free throw with 12 seconds left to win it for the Green Raiders (5-3).
Fleming scored 13 of his game-high 20 points in the second half including seven in the fourth quarter to help Ridley erase a 39-33 deficit. Liam Thompson and Jim Bramwell chipped in with 10 points each.
