"We had been struggling a bit lately, so it's good to get a win here," Suber said. "Everybody contributed and we made our free throws down the stretch."
Suber, who transferred to PE&T after a year at Bartram, shot 11 for 15 from the field and 2 for 3 from the line. Five of his 13 boards came on the offensive end.
"He plays extremely hard, gives us everything he has," Chargers coach James Lewis said. "He's our leader."
Junior guard Devante Truitt also played a key role in the road triumph, registering 16 points, 10 rebounds, three steals, and two assists. He converted 7 of 8 free throws in OT.
"We've been preaching to him about rebounding and defending," Lewis said. "I think he did a pretty good job in those categories. And he was unselfish, too."
PE&T, which was 5 for 9 from the line in regulation, improved to 9-5 overall and 2-4 in Public League action.
Of an up-and-down start to the season, Suber said, "The competition was good, but our discipline was lacking. A lot of times, instead of listening to all the coaches had to say, we were doing our own thing."
Junior guard Samir Doughty paced MC&S (5-9, 2-4) with 17 points and four assists. Watkins posted 14 points, five blocks, and two assists.
Down by 45-38 in the fourth quarter, the Mighty Elephants rallied. Doughty, fouled by Suber on a left-side shot, hit two free throws with 0.1 second remaining to force OT. "I thought my hands were straight up," Suber said of the call.
Suber, who lives in West Philly, has a scholarship offer from Maryland-Eastern Shore. Texas A&M-Corpus Christi and Campbell are also keeping tabs on him.
Junior guard Jihad Barnes aided PE&T, which trailed by 38-33 late in the third period, with 12 points, five assists, and two steals.
