HA looking for redemption, but it’s Providence on the board first taking a commanding lead.

The Raiders start to find their rhythm as Rod Strickland hits the buzzer beater three to end the first quarter, and he’s feeling the love from that home crowd.

Raiders only down by two with seconds to go before the half, and Kamryn Mitchell comes up big with the offensive rebound and put back to tie it up at 20.

Houston Academy with the home win this time 50-46 over Providence Christian.

HA improves to 11-6 on the season.
