Free Throws doom Panthers in stunning 13th Region lose.

March 12, 2015

Knox Central implodes in final 22.9 seconds.

Knox Central’s Matthew Barger brings the ball into the front court. The clock shows Clay County 53 – Knox Central 52, 1:50 remaining in the fourth quarter with a trip to the 13th Region championship game on the line.

Barger surveys the Clay County zone looking for an opening. Senior Jeffrey Adams spots up along the right sideline outside the three point line as Barger delivers him the ball. Adams lets it fly hitting nothing but the bottom of the net as the clock ticks down to 1:48 pushing the Panthers into the lead 55-53 and forcing Clay Count Head Coach Robert Marcum to call a timeout.

Clay County, on their next possession, missed on a three point attempt by Ryan House and Knox Central pulls down the rebound which allowed Chad Marsee to score on the block to push the score to 57-53 with 1:05 remaining.
