(Neb.)- Late Basket Sinks Cardinal Boys In WCT
(Chadron)- Gering scored a basket with just over 10-seconds left in the 4th quarter to knock off Chadron 45-44 at the Western Conference Tournament of Friday.
The Cardinals had three looks at the hoop before the final buzzer sounded but couldn't get any of their attempts to fall.
After falling behind in a slow first quarter, Chadron picked up the pace and controlled the tempo in the second period to grab a 19-17 halftime lead.
The Bulldogs kept Chadron at bay for a lot of the fourth quarter until Cooper Heusman and Coy Bila connected on back to back threes to give the Cardinals the lead, but defensive miscues late allowed Gering to score the winning layup.
Heusman outdid his career high performance of 21-points on Thursday, dropping in 22 to lead the Cards.
Chadron will face Mitchell in the 7th place game at Scottsbluff HS at 12:45 p.m on Saturday.
