HERE TUESDAY

But the last basket of the night was the one that made the difference by the Black Bears — and that made made the last basket of the night Black Bears made the final basket of the night and claimed a 48-47 victory in double-overtime.

The Huskies scored 6 straight points to start the second overtime, but the Bears rallied again and tied things at 46-all with less than a minute remaining. A free throw by Will Merrell put Pawhuska back in front with 9.7 seconds left before Powell took the ball the length of the court for a go-ahead layup with 4 seconds showing on the clock. Pawnee won the girls game, 40-25.
