WARREN, Pa. – One great shot deserved another. And another.

DuBois and Warren traded threes in the final five seconds of regulation to send the game to overtime, where the Beavers outlasted the Dragons, 50-45.

With the game tied at 36-36, DuBois Chooch Husted drove baseline, was double-teamed, and passed into the corner to Al Pasternak, who buried a three with four seconds left.

   

Warren called timeout, Tommy Nyquist pushed the ball up the floor and banked in a deep three at the buzzer to send the game to overtime.

That came on the heels of Parks Ordiway hitting a three to tie the game at 36-all with just under 50 seconds remaining.
