Prep basketball roundup: Central falls in double OT at Huntington

By

Central let a five-point lead early in the fourth quarter get away and lost 81-79 in double overtime in a North Central Conference boys basketball game Friday night at Huntington North.

“It was just a back-and-forth game,” Bearcats coach Matt Fine said. “Both teams hit some big shots. We just couldn’t get a stop when we needed one.”

The game went to extra periods when Huntington North made a 3-point shot at the end of the four quarter to tie the score. The Vikings (8-8) made another 3 to tie the score at the end of the first overtime.

The Vikings dominated in the second OT period as they jumped on top 78-73 in the first 90 seconds. Central never gained the lead after that.

Jabriel Allen made two 3-pointers in the final half-minute, the second one tying the score with 14 seconds to go. But the Vikings sped through Central’s press and scored on a layup with seven seconds to go for an 81-79 lead, and they held on for the win as Central (5-10) lost the ball in the closing seconds
