LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - With 3.9 seconds remaining, Tyler Wesley
scored a three-point play to enable Oldham County to push ahead of
Knott County Central, 36-34, in the quarterfinals of the boy's
state tournament Friday.
The Patriots (29-6) had a chance to tie the game with 2.3
seconds remaining but Seth Davis missed two free throws and Oldham
(31-5) managed to hold on.
Jacob Copp led the Colonels with a nine point effort; Davis had
14 for Knott County Central.
Knott County Central turned out to be its own worst enemy
shooting the ball. The Patriots connected on only six-of-15 shot
attempts from the free-throw line in the fourth quarter and
15-of-29 overall. They also struggled from the floor, hitting on
one-of-eight during the fourth period and eight-of-28 (28.6
percent) for the game.
