Jacks win in quadruple overtime

The Oakwood Lumberjacks basketball team cut the sails off the West Carrollton Pirates 76-70 in a quadruple overtime thriller in the noise-packed Pit.  At a tied score of 53-53 with 31.6 seconds left in regulation, Oakwood called time to setup the final play to win, but didn’t convert before time ended.

Oakwood was behind 55-58 with less than 10 seconds left in OT1 when AJ Lewis was fouled while attempting a 3-point shot. AJ converted two of his three free throws to make it 57-58.  With 3.8 seconds left, Jake Mays was fouled in the act of shooting and made one of his free throws to end OT2 at 58-58.  Baskets were traded to end OT3 at 63-63.

In the fourth OT, the spirit of Oakwood shined.  Robby Sherk began with a lay-up,
and Will Garner sank a pair of foul shots.  But the momentum was all Oakwood when Chris Hardy made a quick strong move to the basket to make a lay-up. The home crowd erupted to a deafening cheer when the referee whistled a blocking foul and signaled Hardy’s basket counted.  Chris, at the line, completed the three-point play.  

Oakwood continued to maintain their poise by converting their foul shots to pull
away 76-70.
