Carver center Joseph Strugg (45) dunks as Dothan’s Kevin Morris (20) attempts to stop him during the AHSAA Class 6A South Regional Tournament on Friday, Feb. 13, 2015, in Dothan, Ala.

DOTHAN – G.W. Carver held on for a 62-50 victory over Dothan in the Class 6A South Regional semifinals on Friday.

The Wolverines were up by double digits in the third quarter, but Dothan cut the margin to five points early in the fourth.

Darian Adams and Antonio Nelson sparked a Carver run to provide separation, and a Brandon Austin dunk made it 50-37 with over three minutes to play.

Nelson finished with 14 points and seven rebounds. Adams added 13 points and three rebounds. Xavious Turner had nine and Lyndell Wilson chipped in eight points.

Alabama signee Brandon Austin scored five points on 2-for-11 shooting. Both of his makes came on fast-break dunks.
