Josh Robertson ‘21 made two free throws at the end of overtime that would put the team up by two possessions. The free throws sealed the game and insured the win.

“I got ice in my veins,” Robertson said. “I knew I was going to put those free throws in.”

Jacob Martin ‘22 made key defensive stops to help get more possessions so the team could get more opportunities to score.

“I knew we needed to play good defense and get multiple stops and then go down and score some baskets, “ Martin said.

Boys basketball coach Travis Steinhoff made some adjustments going into the 4 quarter to help the team get quicker possessions and speed up the game.

“We went small and increased pressure and sped up the game to get as many possessions as we could,” Coach Steinhoff said.
