Malik Newman baffled St. Martin with his offensive game all night, but it was a heads-up defensive play that lifted top-ranked Callaway to victory on Saturday night. With 29.5 seconds to play and the Chargers up by three, Dontelius Ross missed the front end of a 1-and-1 and St. Martin’s Ed Simpson got the rebound. The Yellow Jackets started working the ball down court, but Callaway’s Keigan Haley tipped the ball to Newman for a game-deciding turnover. The Chargers — who have won four of the last five state championships in their classification — then scored the game’s final six points to win 71-62. Newman, rated the No. 1 junior in the country by Rivals.com, scored 35 points, including 23 in the second half.
