St. Mary's wins in OT

LAKEVIEW — St. Mary's has found the winning formula.

The Southern Cascade League-leading Crusaders extended their boys basketball winning streak to six with a 48-44 overtime victory over Lakeview Friday.

"It was a model win for us," said St. Mary's coach Rick Jackson. "The main thing is the kids have bought in to what we have to do to win against good teams. We have to grind out wins by playing good defense, limiting other team's possessions and being patient offensively."

Junior Chris Bates bounced back from his worst performance of the season Tuesday against Bonanza to spark the Crusaders (12-7, 7-1 SCL) with 17 points and a team-high seven rebounds.

"(Bates) can score in a lot of different ways," said Jackson. "He has a great array of offensive moves. Tonight he was aggressive and he looked to score. That's what he needs to do because we don't have that many scorers."

St. Mary's was behind by one point with 15 seconds remaining in regulation when Connor O'Boyle came up with a steal and found a streaking Keenan Grant for his only basket.

Lakeview tied it 39-all on one of two free throws by Andy Pardue with four seconds left.

In overtime, Bates gave the Crusaders the lead for good with a putback basket. After both teams went scoreless for about two minutes, O'Boyle scored on a breakaway created by a Si Boggess steal. O'Boyle was fouled on the play and converted the free throw to give the Crusaders a 44-39 lead.

Boggess, who returned from an illness that caused him to miss one game and see limited duty in the previous outing, was a major factor against the Honkers. The 6-foot-3 senior point guard scored nine points, grabbed six rebounds and handed out four assists.

"Two of the things (Boggess) does for us is he plays good defense and gets rebounds," said Jackson. "The nine points from him was a tremendous bonus because he doesn't score that much. That was a difference maker."

ST. MARY'S (48) — O'Boyle 3, Boggess 9, Grant 2, Gambee 9, Watson 0, Harper 0, Bates 17, Gross 0, Tomlinson 8. Totals: 19 8-16 48.
