Springfield keeps pace in NLL with OT win over Southview

Springfield's Manny Durden stood in position to end Friday night's Northern Lakes League battle with Southview at the end of regulation. But the Blue Devils senior missed a free throw with 0.7 seconds left in the fourth quarter with the score tied at 51, sending the game into an overtime period. Durden made the most of a second chance at securing a win for the Blue Devils at the foul line in OT. He sank two free throws with 2.0 seconds left in the extra quarter to help Springfield pull off a 60-59 victory over Southview.

Titans fend off late charge by Trojans

St. John’s Jesuit started fast, but then had to hold off a furious rally from visiting Findlay on Friday night to take a 59-48 Three Rivers Athletic Conference boys basketball victory. Titans senior guard Anthony Glover, Jr., led all scorers with 22 points and came up with a key steal to stave off the Trojans’ comeback bid in the final 75 seconds.
