The Hundred Hornets’ Travis McCoy gave his team the lead at 50-48, with 20 seconds remaining, with a pair of charity tosses, but East Richland’s Duncan Pagano ,who already drained six three-pointers in the game, was fouled with 2.8 seconds remaining and sank all three to give the hosts a one-point lead.

Pagano scored 45 of his team’s 50 points, while McCoy paced Hundred with 26 points. Cody Soles followed with 14 markers to pace the Hundred Hornets.

Logan Norris added seven points, that included a bonus bomb, while Skylar Goff added a deuce for all the Hundred scoring.
