The Berries were within one to four points for most of the fourth quarter. They got to within 69-68 on a Jennings drive with 4:20 remaining.
Jennings then had a 3 go about halfway down before rattling out. Carter Skaggs later missed a pair of free throws. But Wamsley’s basket with 2:05 left made it a 73-70 game.
Okafor then came up with a blocked shot in transition and hit 1 of 2 free throws with 1:49 left to push the lead back to four.
The lead got to as big as eight before an A.J. Smith 3 and two free throws by Jennings got the lead back down to 80-75 with 30.9 seconds left.
But the Red Devils were solid at the line down the stretch, in particular Davious Webster, who scored 15 of his 22 points in the fourth. He was 9 of 9 from the line in the quarter and had a big three-point play with 1:24 left that made it a 77-70 game.
Richmond outrebounded Logan 31-30, committed seven less turnovers (9) and made 9 of 24 3-pointers. Tillman was 7 of 13 from beyond the arc.
“Their press got to us, that’s about it. Everything else we did right,” Wamsley said. “And then they were hitting 3s. They were knocking down 3s. That wasn’t in the scouting report that they could hit that many 3s.”
The Berries had five players in double figures. Wamsley led the way with 20 points, followed by Carter Skaggs with 17, Jennings with 16, Smith with 15 and Adaway with 10. Jennings, a 5-9 freshman, had a team-high six boards.
Carter Skaggs went over the 1,000-point milestone in the game. The 6-5 junior, who played his first two seasons at Pioneer, now has 1,014 points for his career.
“I know the attention goes to Skaggs a lot,” Richmond coach Joe Luce said. “He does make some plays. He’s an outstanding player. He’s a Junior All-Star in my opinion without a doubt. At the end of the day though, every one of the guys on that team came and fought and it was a very, very good team.
