Bishop Seabury’s boys basketball needed some theatrics to pull out a 45-44 win over Mid-Buchanan in the Missouri Hall of Fame Classic at Benton High School on Saturday.
Senior Cobe Green was fouled going to the basket with 3.6 seconds remaining, going to the line with the game tied at 44. Green made the first, but missed the second attempt from the charity stripe. Mid-Buchanan then missed the game-winning attempt at the buzzer.
Green anchored the Seahawks (No. 1 in Class 2A) on both ends of the floor in their latest win. He paced the team with 18 points on five 2-point baskets and one triple. He also defended the team’s best player on the defensive end. Junior Zach Bloch added 10 points.
“A hard-fought victory,” BSA head coach Jonathan Raney said. “To see our boys once again battle through adversity and find a way late to make the plays was nice.”
The Seahawks have now won eight games in a row, improving their record to 15-2.
Bishop Seabury will host Northland Christian at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.
