CAMERON COUNTY 44, KANE 41, OVERTIME
KANE, Pa. – Hayden Brown’s old-school 3-point play with 1:33 to play in the second overtime helped visiting Cameron County knock off Kane, 44-41.
The Red Raiders trailed 41-39 in the second overtime after a runner by Sam Lundeen for Kane.
But Cameron County and Brown were the beneficiaries of some good luck at the other end, as Lundeen blocked an Alan Erickson shot right into the hands of Brown, who scored and was fouled.
The Wolves had a couple of chances with under 10 seconds to play but first lost the ball out of bounds under the hoop with 5.5 seconds left.
They got the ball back following a pair of Brown free throws, but Cameron County fouled Lundeen with 2.4 to play. He missed the first shot, and when he tried to miss the second on purpose he missed everything giving the ball back to the Red Raiders.
Kane led by three, 37-34, with under 30 seconds to play in the first overtime and was trying to run out the clock when Brown stole a Josh Greville pass into the corner with 22 seconds left.
Brown was then fouled bringing the foul across the timeline and hit the first free throw to make it 37-35.
The second charity shot was no good, but Camdyn Allison made a great rebound getting the ball in midair and calling timeout with 13.7 seconds to play.
Allison was then fouled inside by Andy Jekielek when he rebounded a Brown miss with 3.6 left and hit both free throws to tie the game at 37.
Greville almost won the game at the horn, but his foul-line jumper, which went in, came just after the horn sounded setting up the second overtime.
Kane had to rally from a 34-29 deficit late in regulation to extend the game.
A Landon Darr 3-pointer with just over a minute left got the Wolves to within three, 34-32.
After Brevin Lewis and Brown both missed free throws for Cameron County, Jekielek tied the game with a 7-foot shot in the lane with 1.4 seconds to play to send the game to overtime.
Brown had a monster game for Cameron County with a career-high 32 points, while Allison added eight.
Jekielek scored 12 to lead Kane before fouling out with Lundeen adding seven.
Justin Mishic chipped in seven rebounds, three assists, and three points for the Wolves, while Greville had three points, all in the overtimes, and six rebounds.
