NORTHERN POTTER 44, AUSTIN 43

AUSTIN, Pa. – With a 3-pointer early in the fourth quarter of a 44-43 win at Austin, Northern Potter’s Carter Anderson became the first Panther to score 1,000 career points in 25 years.

Anderson was the triggerman under the hoop and leaked out to the left corner where he received the ball back and nailed the shot that gave him 1,000 points exactly, the final points he scored on the night.

Anderson is the first Northern Potter boys’ player to score 1,000 point since Joshua Kosa in 1996. He is also only the fourth known player in school history to reach 1,000 joining Donald Thompson (1982) and Robb Cowburn (1987).

Anderson talked with D9and10Sports.com’s Chris Rossetti about the milestone

While Anderson’s milestone was one of the highlights of the game, it wasn’t the only one.

Tre Slawson won the game for Northern Potter when he connected on a short jumper in the lane with 27.3 seconds left off an inbounds pass from Tanyon Brown.

Brown had saved the day for NoPo when he threw the ball off an Austin player as he was going out of bounds on a rebound of a teammate’s missed shot.

Slawson then cut the hoop from the 3-point circle on the inbounds and took the 1-foot jumper for the lead.

Austin had a chance to tie the game or retake the lead when Ayden Nicka was fouled by Slawson with 8.9 seconds left attempting a layup.

Nicka’s first shot, however, rattled in and out and his second shot was too strong with Brown securing the rebound for Northern Potter.

Brown was fouled with 6.8 seconds left, but Northern Potter wasn’t in the bonus yet.

Anderson was then fouled with 5.7 seconds left, the seventh team foul on Austin.

Anderson, however, missed the free throw, and Austin called time out with 4.4 to play.

Austin rushed the ball up court, but couldn’t get a shot off before time ran out.

The home team trailed by five, 42-37, with under three minutes to play but went on a 6-0 run that was capped by a Nicka basket in the post off a Cameron Rees feed with 57.7 seconds left to take a 43-42 lead.

Anderson’s 16 points led Northern Potter with Slawson adding 11.

Jackson Glover paced Austin with 21 points, seven rebounds, five assists, and four steals. Nicka added 14 points and six rebounds.

CAMERON COUNTY 37, ST. MARYS 31, OVERTIME

ST. MARYS, Pa. – Thanks to the sharpshooting of Camdyn Allison in the fourth quarter, visiting Cameron County rallied from a seven-point second-half deficit to beat St. Marys 37-31.

The Red Raiders trailed 24-17 following a Bryce Walker jumped with around 50 seconds left in the third quarter but went on a 12-1 run that featured a pair of 3-pointers from Allison, who also hit a pair of free throws in the spurt.

That gave Cameron County a 29-25 lead with just over a minute left in regulation.

You can watch Allison’s second 3-pointer at around 2:35 of the fourth quarter via St. Marys’ Facebook Live stream of the game at this link. The basket comes at the 2:21:14 mark of the video.

Down four, St. Marys didn’t back down.

Luke Lasko’s jumper with 55 seconds left made it 29-27.

Then, after Hayden Brown missed a free throw, Mitchel Reiter grabbed an offense rebound and put it back in to tie the game at 29 (it can be viewed at the 2:28:01 mark of the above video link).

Lasko, however, fouled Caden Beldin thinking St. Marys was still down, but Beldin bailed Lasko out by missing the free throw and the game ended up going to overtime tied at 29.

It the extra session, St. Marys scored the first seven points thanks to a basket by Beldin, another one from Brown, a free throw from Brown, and two Allison free throws to go ahead 36-29.
