Matthew Gwathney and Drake Riley provided those three attributes in the frontcourt for Oak Hill against the Heritage Patriots.
Gwathney scored 12 points and pulled down nine rebounds, Riley secured 14 rebounds and six points and the Oak Hill Raiders protected home court with a 53-42 win over Heritage Tuesday night on the campus of Oak Hill Academy in West Point.

Heritage closed the gap between it and Oak Hill after trailing by 20 points to start the fourth-quarter, 45-25.
