Late basket puts Clay City in final vs. WRV

TERRE HAUTE — It’ll be White River Valley vs. Clay City in the championship game of the Class A WRV Sectional for boys high school basketball tonight following a dramatic finish Friday night.

WRV defeated Eminence 50-28 in the first game and the Eels edged Shakamak 59-57 in the second game with Easton Booe scoring the winning basket with 4.8 seconds left in the contest delayed three times.

Two delays were needed to remove blood from the floor in the first and third periods and the final came in the final minutes of the final period after Blake Cesinger took a nasty fall attempting to block Dylan Collins’ shot following his steal.

“He took a pretty good shot … he had feeling in his legs,” said CC coach Vance Edmondson following the game. The senior was taken to Greene County Hospital for observation and treatment.

Collins hit both free throws after play resumed to give the Lakers a 53-50 lead but it was shortlived as Evan Rogers hit one of his four 3-pointers to tie the score.

Brandon Morin hit a bucket to put the Lakers back in front 55-53 with just under two minutes left and Booe responded for another tie.

Brodie Crowe hit two free throws to give the Lakers their last lead at 57-55 with 1 minute, 29 seconds left.

Trevor Singer hit his second field goal of the fourth quarter for a 57-57 tie with just under a minute left on the clock. Booe’s winning shot came after a miss by the Lakers and Shakamak had time for a last-second shot after gaining possession with a jump ball called with two seconds to go.

Clay City used a 9-0 run to assume a 21-8 lead after one period and the Lakers responded with a 17-0 run — with Crowe scoring 15 of the points — to open the second stanza and they had a 33-24 lead at intermission.

Rogers then got hot after going 0 for 6 in the first half. He hit three 3-pointers and had 11 points in the third canto as the Eels pulled even and the two teams went into the final period tied 41-41.

The score was deadlocked three times before Crowe hit a free throw to put the Lakers up 51-50, setting the stage for the final heroics.

Crowe led all scorers with 26 points and Morin finished with 15 points for the Lakers, finishing 11-12. Josh Miller had 10 points in the first period and finished with 15 for the 14-8 Eels. Rogers had 14 and Cesinger tallied 11 before being injured.
