THE FIRST GAME OF THE DAY PUSHED ALL THE OTHER GAMES BACK WHEN CROCKER EDGED OUT PLATO, 48-41 IN DOUBLE OVERTIME….OFFENSE TOOK THE DAY OFF FOR BOTH TEAMS, WHICH USUALLY MEANS THE DEFENSE WAS GOOD…..7-2 AFTER ONE, IT WAS TIED AT 14 AT THE HALF, 20-16 AFTER 3, AND TIED AT 29 AT THE END OF REGULATION, BUT PLATO THOUGHT THEY WON IT WHEN KENNEDY HALL LAUNCHED ONE FROM CENTER COURT AT THE BUZZER THAT HIT THE SIDE OF THE RIM AND WENT DOWN, BUT 2 OF THE 3 OFFICIALS RULED IT WAS TOO LATE AND WE HEADED TO O.T….CROCKER WON THIS AT THE FREE THROW LINE IN THE 2ND O.T. HITTING 10 OF 12..

PLATO WAS 4 FOR 4 BUT THAT’S A 6 POINT DIFFERENCE IN A 7 POINT VICTORY.

THE TEXAS COUNTY SHOOTOUT FOR 3RD SAW THE 4TH SEED LICKING WILDCATS USED A STELLER 2ND HALF TO UPEND 6TH SEED PLATO, 72-59….

LEADING THE SCORING FOR THE WILDCATS WAS WILSON MURRAY WITH 21, BRYCE CORLEY ADDED 18 AND MALACHI ANTLE TOSSED IN 14…..

BESIDES GRADY TODD’S 30, LEVI JOHNSON HAD 18, AND PLATO COULD HAVE USED HIM DOWN THE STRETCH, BUT HE FOULED OUT IN THE 4TH.
