Big Spring boys
Brownwood sent the wrong player to the line with 3.2 seconds left.
The Lions were clinging to a 49-48 lead when Luke Adams was fouled and sent to the charity stripe and at that point, it was just a matter of playing defense for three more seconds.
â€śI knew they were going in,â€ť Adams said of the late free throws. â€śWithout my teammates, it wouldnâ€™t have been possible.â€ť
Those two free throws did go in as Big Spring edged the Lions for a thrilling 50-49 win and Adams is right. The Steers wouldnâ€™t have been in position to win if it werenâ€™t for Dayvion Youngâ€™s late heroics.
