LAMPASAS 55, BOSQUEVILLE 53, OT: Qadir Tolliver scored on a fast-break layup to give the Badgers the lead for good in an overtime victory at the Hamilton tournament.
It was the only basket in the extra period.
The Badgers found a way to win despite blowing a 13-point lead in the fourth quarter and watching top scorers Kolbe Penick (16 points) and Raven Wade (11) foul out.
Lampasas (7-6) also survived a dazzling performance by the Bulldogs' Tyler Webb, who hit a 3-pointer off an inbounds play with 2 seconds remaining and send the game to overtime.
The 6-foot-3 sophomore Webb finished with 25 points and earned rave reviews from Lampasas coach Aaron Nuckles.
"This kid is as good as I’ve seen at any level. He’s going to do some things."
Webb and Bosqueville were quiet in overtime, however. Webb hit an early free throw for the Bulldogs' last lead, and last point.
"Our defense really clamped down," Nuckles said.
Lampasas' Michael Murray, who also scored 11 points, added a free throw in the final seconds to give the Badgers a two-point lead and Webb missed a desperation heave for the win at the buzzer.
"It was a tough, tough physical game," Nuckles said.
Murray scored all of his points in the second half. Tolliver finished with four steals. Penick made four 3-pointers, giving him 10 in his last two outings.
The Badgers face Llano today at 1 p.m. for the consolation championship.
Webb wasn't even the best Tyler the Badgers have seen in Hamilton. On Thursday, Troy's Tyler Jarolic tossed in 35 points in the Trojans' 55-51 win over Lampasas.
Penick also shined with a career-high 23 on 6-of-7 3-point shooting.
