Just nine seconds and two points made three-quarters of disappointing basketball disappear for the Iola boys Wednesday evening when the Mustangs beat Prairie View at home in overtime, 65-60.
The win moves Iola to 9-8 overall so far this season. Theyve won three of their last four.
What I told the boys was this wasnt our best effort, head coach Luke Bycroft said. It wasnt our best game executing what we want to do offensively and defensively. We didnt take care of the ball very well. But it may have been our best showing of heart and toughness. Things werent easy and we struggled. But we found a way.
