Heroic Comeback Falls Short

DSC_7738The boys basketball team trailed by as many as 11 points in the fourth quarter and by nine points with about two minutes remaining, but charged back to tie Norcom High School in regulation in a packed and wild Treehouse on Tuesday.

Bash Townes made two free throws in the closing seconds to bring Collegiate even.

In overtime, the Oaks had their chances, but fell to Norcom.

Details about the game tomorrow.
