BUZZER BEATER KEEPS WINDSOR UNDEFEATED IN NBL
The No. 1 Windsor Boys Basketball team looked like a team that might have celebrated too much since sewing up its first ever North Bay League Championship. After all was said and done though, at the end of the game they were celebrating again.
Parker Canady pulled down an offensive rebound and put it back in at the buzzer to give Windsor a 40-38 win over No. 5 Montgomery. The winning streak for Windsor is now 13 and the overall record goes to 21-3. It also keeps their record perfect in the North Bay League at 12-0. It was the first league game that they didn’t win by double figures. The 40 points is also the least amount of points they have scored all season. The only other time they didn’t reach 50 was the last time they met Montgomery in a 49-30 win.
Windsor led most of the game and almost all the second half. Windsor took the lead for good when they broke a 20-20 tie with five minutes to go in the third quarter. Their biggest lead was 29-23 which was after three quarters.
After a basket by Brent Tucker it was still 38-33 with two minutes left. Windsor didn’t score again until the buzzer shot. Joel Seitz scored with :15 left to tie the game at 38-38.
After a time out by both teams, Gabe Knight dribbled out most of the time. Knight, who was the game’s leading scorer with 21, missed about a 17 foot jumper from the wing. But he left enough time for Canady to get the rebound and put it in.
Lane Young led Montgomery with 19 points, scoring six of them in the fourth quarter.
The loss for Montgomery was expected, but the just miss of the upset was a big one. Ukiah moved into a tie for the final NBL post season tournament spot with a 50-44 win over Casa Grande. Montgomery won the season series from Ukiah 2-0, so the guess here is they would get the tie-breaker.
Each team has two games left with the games on Wednesday and Friday. Montgomery is at Casa Grande and then hosts Santa Rosa. Ukiah will be favorites in both of its games which are a home game against Maria Carrillo and a road game at Rancho Cotate.
No. 6 Santa Rosa and No. 7 Cardinal Newman both won and is tied for second one game ahead of Montgomery at Ukiah. On Wednesday Cardinal Newman is traveling to Santa Rosa. Cardinal Newman ends the league season with a home game vs. Casa Grande.
The win by Santa Rosa assures they will finish over .500 in league play for the first time in the Max Preps era which began in 2005.
