Tigers use overtimes to claim fifth
JOSH BROWN

Overtime proved to be an ally of Hutsonville-Palestine's boys' basketball team Dec. 27-28.

Two of the three games the Tigers played at the Tri-County Holiday Tournament needed at least one extra session and they won both of those games.

On Dec. 27, Hutsonville-Palestine opened the day by outlasting Stewardson-Strasburg in double-overtime, 64-56, then the Tigers lost to Arthur-Lovington to finish pool play, 69-35. In the fifth-place game Dec. 28, Hutsonville-Palestine held off Little Illini Conference rival Cumberland in overtime, 55-53.



Friday

In their first game of the day, neither Hutsonville-Palestine nor Stewardson-Strasburg led by more than eight points in a game that was back-and-forth throughout.

Stewardson-Strasburg held a 12-7 advantage after one quarter of play, while Hutsonville-Palestine outscored the Comets 10-8 in the second quarter to trim their halftime deficit to 20-17. The Tigers then outscored the Comets 15-13 in the third quarter to get within 33-32, then outscored them 13-12 in the fourth quarter to force overtime. Hutsonville-Palestine actually held a 45-41 lead with 39 seconds left, but couldn't put the game away, as they missed four free throws and a shot in the lane at the buzzer, allowing Stewardson-Strasburg to get the game to the extra session.

A similar scenario unfolded in overtime, as Hutsonville-Palestine led 54-50 with less than a minute to play. After a Stewardson-Strasburg basket, Hutsonville-Palestine missed two more free throws and allowed Stew-Stras to score with 10 seconds left to send the game to a second overtime.

In the second overtime, Treyver Ferguson hit a three-pointer with 51.8 seconds left to give the Tigers a 60-56 lead and the Tigers made their free throws down the stretch to seal the win.

Graham Alspach led Hutsonville-Palestine with 27 points and 11 rebounds, while Landon Williams and Ferguson were also in double figures with 17 and 11 points, respectively. Kienan Knecht tossed in three points and Blake Newlin, Trent Newlin and Justin Lowrance added two points apiece.

Brandon Helmuth led Stewardson-Strasburg with 28 points, while Jason Fry posted 10 points and 10 rebounds.

Their second game of the day was not nearly as exciting. After hanging around for awhile, the Tigers appeared to run out of gas. Hutsonville-Palestine only trailed Arthur-Lovington 17-16 after the first quarter, but the Tigers were outscored 22-7 in the second quarter for a 39-23 halftime deficit. Arthur-Lovington then outscored Hutsonville-Palestine 19-9 in the third quarter and 11-3 in the fourth to pull away for the win.

Ferguson led the Tigers with eight points, while Alspach and Lowrance each scored six. Williams tossed in five points, Knecht netted four and Blake Newlin and Trent Newlin added three points apiece.

Curtis Plank led Arthur-Lovington with 18 points, while Tyler Schuring tossed in 16 and Caleb Schrock added 10.

In other action Friday, Cumberland beat Windsor 58-44, Tri-County beat Stewardson-Strasburg 59-43, Paris beat Windsor 78-63, Westville beat Cumberland 61-44 and Arthur-Lovington beat Tri-County 59-31.



Saturday

For the second time in a little over a week, Hutsonville-Palestine let a fourth quarter lead slip away against Cumberland. This time, however, the Tigers managed to find a way to still get the win.

Cumberland jumped out to an 11-8 lead after one quarter and led 15-13 early in the second, but Hutsonville-Palestine then went on an 18-2 run to take a 31-17 lead, on their way to outscoring the Pirates 23-9 to take a 31-20 lead at halftime. The Tigers held a 39-26 lead with less than three minutes left in the third quarter, but Cumberland responded with a 17-4 run spanning the end of the third and beginning of the fourth, tying the game at 43-43. Cumberland grabbed the lead on a free throw by Houston Napier with 46 seconds left, while Jacob Weaver made a free throw for Hutsonville-Palestine with 26 seconds left and the game went to overtime tied at 44-44.

Hutsonville-Palestine trailed 48-47 with less than two minutes to play, but Landon Williams put the Tigers back in front with a basket at the 1:20 mark and the Tigers would not trail again. With the Tigers clinging to a 51-50 lead, Williams would make four free throws down the stretch to seal the win.

Williams led Hutsonville-Palestine with 17 points, while Knecht tossed in nine. Ferguson and Weaver scored eight points apiece, Lowrance netted seven and Alspach added six.

Napier and Caleb Brumleve shared scoring honors for Cumberland with 11 points apiece, while Monte Wolke scored nine.

In other games Saturday, Stewardson-Strasburg outlasted Windsor in double overtime, 78-71, Westville beat Tri-County in the third-place game, 60-39 and Arthur-Lovington rolled past Paris in the championship game, 68-48.
