OMAK — Okanogan traveled to Omak on Jan. 31 and pulled out a nearly last-second boys’ basketball win (63-61).
“It’s not over until the final buzzer sounds, all those in attendance of the Omak vs. Okanogan game were reminded on Jan. 31,” said Okanogan assistant coach Kyle Thornton. “With only 2.5 seconds left in the game, Bulldog Chase Wilson threw a pass across the court to Carson Boesel, who tipped it over his head to a running Josue Ramos, who missed a tough left-handed layup.”
“Ninety-nine point nine percent of the time, that would be the end,” he said. “But Boesel had not only tipped it to Ramos, he followed his pass, rebounded that miss and laid the ball in to give us the win.”
Okanogan 63 - Wagner, 2. Clark, 3. Boesel, 10. Radke, 10. Ramos, 5. Mail, 10. Wilson, 17. Perez, 6.
Omak 61 - Hall, 5. Davis, 17. Boyd, 17. Black, 2. Sam, 6. Marchand, 6. Sackman, 8.
