Lakers Down Potomac State in OT

The Garrett Lakers won a huge Region XX contest stopping nearby rival Potomac State 87 – 80 in OT. YanNick Zanfack hit one of two free throws to send the game into OT with just 9 seconds remaining. A defensive stop and rebound by Marquise Green gave the Lakers a chance for a new five minute stanza. Din Moore, 18 points, including 5 in the OT came up big with clutch shots.

DJ Ritchie played an outstanding floor game and added 15 points also. “Kurt Gangler and Shannon McCready gave us a strong defensive effort off the bench. I thought Kurt’s defensive pressure gave us a big boost, we were playing flat, and we were able to make a run after going down 5 points in the second half,” noted Coach Gibson.
