ROCKVILLE — Djordje Orcev saved the best for last.
The Richard Montgomery Rockets’ rising senior scored two key baskets late in Monday’s game against the Good Counsel Falcons, sparking the Rockets to a 43-40 victory over the Falcons in the Maryland Elite Summer League at Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School.
“He had an awesome game,” Richard Montgomery assistant Azhar Shamsudeen said afterward.
Orcev, who finished with a game-high 18 points, converted a free throw with 49.6 seconds remaining in the contest and scored in traffic to help the Rockets seal the deal in the waning moments.
“We were down for most of the game,” said Orcev. “It was a rough first half, definitely, and we came back, we inched forward and at the end there we had to close it out.”
