Raiders Fall In OT

SHELBY COUNTY — Central A&M boys basketgball had a rollercoaster ride playing St. Elmo/Brownstown on Saturday. St. Elmo climbed the final hill and finally notched a 2-point win in overtime, 66-64.

Central A&M teed it up from the 3-point line and struck paydirt 10 times. Meanwhile, St. Elmo was prolific inside the arc and at the line. These two opposing forces drove the rollercoaster to furious finish.

A&M had 24 field goals and St. Elmo 25. A&M had 30 points from the arc and 28 points from inside play. St. Elmo had 42 points inside the arc and 12 beyond. That left A&M up 58-54. The difference came at the line.

Shooting 3s doesn't get you to the line. Central A&M shot 11 free throws and made just six. St. Elmo got to the line a little more, 15 times, but made twice as many as the Raiders (12). A 6-point edge at the line tipped the scales, undid the 4-point A&M edge from the floor, and gave ST. E/B the win OT.

Central A&M was just 6-of-11 at the line, while St. Elmo scored 12-of-15.

St. Elmo held a 3-point lead after the 1st, 16-13. The Raiders grabbed momentum in the 2nd on a 19-10 run to take a 6-point lead at the half, 32-26.

A&M tried to pull away in the 3rd and extended their lead to 10 points, 40-30. St. Elmo was able to snag the Raiders before they got too far out front. They reeled them back in with an 18-8 run in crunch time and forced overtime, 48-48. In the extra period, St. Elmo had a 2-point edge at the final buzzer, 66-64.

Despite the loss, Trent Chepan scored 19 points, after scoring 20 points the night before. Chepan scored eight times and was a perfect 3-of-3 at the line.
