Justin Thomas sank two free throws with six seconds left to give the Eagles a four-point lead and hold off a Panther rally.

Clay led by nine midway through the fourth quarter but Whitmer closed to within three as Darnell Randolph scored eight of his team-high 21 points in the final period.

The Eagles hit six of nine free throws down the stretch to seal it.

Thomas paced Clay (9-11, 3-7) with 15 points and Bryan McDougle added 13.

John Kirby scored 14 for Whitmer (7-13, 3-7).

FINDLAY - The Trojans hit five 3s in the first quarter, putting the Blue Streaks in a hole they never got out of as Findlay clinched a share of the league title.
