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!

Last year Serrel Smith (#10 white team) dropped 39 on Oak Hill in the Same Gym!
Serrel Smith isn’t just “a local kid” he’s ranked with d1 offers...
Lol i don’t understand why oak hill is cocky..... majority of the teams they play they have 5x the talent ... u should win 🤷🏽‍♂️🤷🏽‍♂️
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
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
Didn’t he drop 39 on them last year
Oak hill are some bullies, but hats off for number 10
Allen Smith
No.10 is by far the best player on the floor and no.2 in white has got skills.
Marco Chavez

Jacob Thomas

Allen Smith
No. 3 is is a creep, Oak hill looks like a good high school team full of role players at the next level.
ok swag

David Hayes
So I guess you could say he dropped 81 on them 😁
Jordon Hardy
You can’t say local kid who’s also a D1 athlete 😂
Roman Gonzales

Dylan Zatarain

Papaya Yang
he plays like jamal crawford to me😅
Sola Ayodele
Oak Hill remind me of the Monstars in space jam ..just straight beasts
Lol the funny thing is the raw talent on oak hill is minimal to none lol. The ONLY thing they do is lob and that's because their roster has taller players than your average d1 line up. Like really you're telling me the number 0 kid is committed to a big D1 school? There was nothing exceptional about this team in all honesty.
Jermaine J
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?
Rico Loso
anyone else here someone say suicide
D Ev
#3 is 6”7average ball player he not doing anything out of the ordinary #shareefonealunderrated

Mccormack won MVP and only had 2 highlights.

Keontae Johnson, #2 Oak Hill is the best player on the court. Top 10 talent in the country.
hoopmixtape canada

Young Gucci Mane a shooter fr. LMAO
George Roberson

Sola Ayodele
That Local Kid is a D1 athlete loool ..u clickbait dude ..great match though
Julio Lois
lmao #3 got lit up by Smith, was so embarrassed lol
Roland Veal
Travis Mabe
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
Hope he does well in college
Sola Ayodele
Lool.. the hell were the team in the white jerseys celebrating each time when they were still behind on points 😂😂
Zac Broderick
Love the videos, but my feedback would be to zoom out the camera a bit when filming the games. Every camera shot is super zoomed in on the player, and its often shaky. Gives me a headache watching it.
Richie Bleu
Got a Kobe feel the Smith kid
Adrian Lujambio
"he going to drop forty again"
Miles Haughton
why they hype ? they lost lmao
Charles Driscoll
WTF are the camera man talkin bout lol
How is he a local kid he has d1 offers
this isn't just a local kid, this is a 4 star recruit on the 6th best team in Florida
Oak hills ranked #2 cuz they get to travel the whole game
Intro gotta go.
this camerman is kinda pooopp
Did you see #0 when the started arguing he walked away like lonzo did.
This is a lesson learned for Oakhill,have respect for your opponent,or you can get torched,even tho they won.
Tabernacle Tuesdays

I can't stand these F#$king weak ass kids flopping around already. Screaming AND 1 and yelling "AHHH" every time they drive in looking for a foul. I miss real basketball.
Eric Sarria
