Where there's a will, there's a way. And Serrel Smith had a gym-full of will on Saturday. With St. Petersburg trailing nationally-ranked Oak Hill Academy by as many as 21 points in the third quarter of the National Hoopfest contest, Smith simply lit things up for a standing-room-only crowd at Berkeley Prep. Hitting five deep 3-pointers in the fourth quarter alone, Smith willed the Green Devils back into the game. His last 3 trimmed the Virginia squad's advantage to five with 48 seconds remaining, but they just ran out of time in a 78-72 setback. With two McDonald's All-Americans playing for Oak Hill (22-0), Smith was the best player on the court. The first player on a losing team to receive a National Hoopfest game MVP award, Smith dropped in a weekend-high 42 points, going 8-for-12 from behind the arc, and added five steals. "Ole Miss has got a good one; he's a special player," said St. Petersburg coach Chris Blackwell. "These are things he's been doing since his freshman year. He's always had a good supporting cast but at the end of the day, when a bucket is needed, we know who to go to." It didn't look like Smith was going to get a chance to be a difference-maker as Oak Hill played most of the first half over the rim. A crushing trap led to a lightning-fast transition game and dunks from All-Americans David McCormack (13 points and 15 rebounds, team MVP) and Keldon Johnson (23 points and eight boards) as well as Keyontae Johnson (12 points and seven assists). Oak Hill was up 48-32 at halftime and stretched its advantage to 60-39 with 3:23 left in the third quarter. Enter Smith, who triggered a quick 8-0 run late in the third before raining in 3s in the fourth. "I was kind of rattled up in the first half," Smith said. "Once I settled down, it started coming easy." St. Petersburg's first three baskets came from the senior to cut the gap to single digits, raising the energy level in the gym with every swish. The D for the Green Devils (13-2) held Oak Hill scoreless for the first four minutes of the fourth, and scoring from seniors Tai Strickland (12 points), DJ Anderson (six points) and Tre'zon Brown made it a two-possession game. "We had to tighten up and limit their transition. It was killing us, but when we stopped it, we started cutting into the lead," said Smith, as his third steal of the quarter gave the Green Devils a pair of opportunities to further close the gap. "This is the best competition we've got, right here," Smith said. "The competition at home is going to be way easier. We've got to work together and we'll be okay." "We're probably going to be one of the teams to contend with (in the playoffs)," Blackwell said. "We'll be working on fine tuning the things we do well, working on our detail and trusting our process. If we stay healthy, we'll be reckoned with." #HoopJourney Subscribe To Our Second Channel Hoop Journey 2: /> LIKE, COMMENT, SUBSCRIBE!

Jonathan Lee
Awesome to see that the team was hype for their teammate even though they took a loss. Great teammates
I don’t care what nobody says that boy killed Oak Hill! They’re lucky he didn’t have any real help
Serrel Smith isn’t just “a local kid” he’s ranked with d1 offers...
Spencer Gibson
People who don't understand why St. Pete is cheering after a loss against the top team in the nation doesn't know basketball and doesn't appreciate the sport.
Justin Berry

It appears the "local kid" Serrel Smith is committed to Maryland and withdrew from Ole Miss. Can we officially say he doesn't have enough help?

if you go against a stacked team of pretty much all d1 caliber players like oak hill and then you're on an "unknown" high school team with 1 or 2 players that may go d1 if I only lost by 6 id be talking trash and getting hyped to
Bryce Thomas
That's what I'm talking about Don't matter When you get buckets you get buckets 🤙🏽‼️
whoever number 33 is for oak hill don't do em like that! (nasty dunk)
Bobby Blatts
Oak Hill is a joke, anyone can put an all star team together and win. No respect for that club.
Brandon Haines
This game clearly shows how much better Serrel and the other dude are more skilled players... They don't need other players to make them look good...
D Ev

MC elroyVEVO
"he did a euro in the air."
I was more impressed by the “local kid”. Showed heart against a superior team. Doesn’t look the most athletically gifted but he showed me a lot.
Trevor Black

Nick Acree
#10 put work on the oak hill hot heads lol always so made and think there entitled , 10 cooked all of them
Air Bag
He's going to Maryland, a basketball town and where underarmour has its headquarters.
This is a lesson learned for Oakhill,have respect for your opponent,or you can get torched,even tho they won.
Zetsu Tsuletsu
Lost all respect for ophrasilv when he started dogging dark skin girls for no reason.
Henry Epps

Did you see #0 when the started arguing he walked away like lonzo did.
Alexander De Caro
Why did the announcer have to do that to Young Thug #11😂

Flame On
Soooo basically they’re a trash team with one good player..?
Sola Ayodele
Lool.. the hell were the team in the white jerseys celebrating each time when they were still behind on points 😂😂
Travis Blick
For that many D1 players they’re trash
Serrel Smith has that killer instinct with a smooth jumper and he can play defense. Keep an eye on that one.
Chris Caban
Serrel shoots just like kobe
Jordon Hardy
You can’t say local kid who’s also a D1 athlete 😂
Darren Vath
These dude are STRONG they just create mid air and get those buckets. Guess that why all of them are going to big schools lol.
Jesus Becerra

8:00 he dunked on a midget.
Both teams lazy on defense -- lots of lost opportunities for steals that were missed.
Uncle Mike
