The win, which ended a five-game losing streak, came as the Sixers began a seven-game road trip. All three of their victories this season have come away from home.

Philadelphia trailed by 11 in the third quarter, but led by as many as 14 points in the fourth.

The Sixers also got a lift from their bench, which outscored the Magic reserves 37-20.

Victor Oladipo had 23 points for the Magic. Nik Vucevic finished with 19 points and 17 rebounds, and Tobias Harris added 17 points.

The Magic have lost four straight and six of their last seven.

The Philadelphia Eagles are on the brink of elimination from the playoff race after a 27-24 loss to the Washington Redskins on Saturday.

Kai Forbath kicked 26-yard field goal with 5 seconds remaining to snap the Redskins' six-game losing streak.

The Eagles lost their third in a row to fall to 9-6.

They need the Dallas Cowboys to lose their final two games to have a shot at repeating as NFC East champs.

The Redskins improved to 4-11.

Robert Griffin III returned as the Washington starter and won in his first complete game in more than a year.

He went 16 for 23 for 220 yards with one interception.

Mark Sanchez committed two turnovers for the Eagles, including an interception that led to the winning field goal.



Mt. Pleasant wins close game against William Penn

By Brandon Bossert 4:43pm, December 20, 2014
Mount Pleasant showed great resilience Saturday afternoon as they defeated William Penn, 57-54 to remain undefeated.

The Green Knights sat starters Raheim Burnett, Robert Myrick, and SeiQuann Kearney in the first quarter. Junior Ronald Shipman-Scott turned in a big performance in their absence. In the first quarter, Shipman-Scott controlled the paint and collected 10 of his 13 points. After one, Mount led 12-6.

Trailing by 15 at one point, William Penn clawed to stay in the game, and cut the deficit to seven by the half.

With over a minute left in the third, the Colonials took their first lead of the game since the opening minutes.

Down the stretch William Penn held a steady, yet slim lead. They could never push their advantage over a six-point margin.

With the score tied at 51 late, Burnett, who lead the Green Knights with 14 points, went to the line. He would make his first attempt, and on his second attempt it was Shipman-Scott there to corral his missed shot, and put it in to give Mount a 3-point lead.

William Penn could not recover, and the Green Knights advance to 5-0 on the young season.

When the Knights fell behind late Shipman-Scott said "we stuck together, we talked it out, we calmed ourselves down, we went back out and we did what we had to do."

Mount Pleasant will next play Hodgson January 6th. William Penn, 3-2) also waits until the sixth to play Concord.
