State 4A day 2: Gonzaga Prep

First quarter of GP-Garfield is tied 11-11 - Ryan Nicholas took up where he left off with 9 of 11. Game’s physical as might be expected but closer to the vest than last night. Began at 9:30 p.m. Bulldogs extended defense bothers Bullpups. And Tony Wroten pretty special, but Prep hangs tough.

2nd quarter - It’s Long vs. Wroten defensively. Bullpups can’t get outside look until Sean Fischer buries shot from left side with 44 seconds left and 21-20 lead. Stockton goes down lane for another basket :11, but Wroten answers in kind and barrells over Long, but gets block call, 02. Prep up 23-21 at half.

 3rd quarter - As gritty as the first two. Prep builds a 30-24 lead early, but Wroton ties it. Then Travis Long makes a strong move baseline for a basket and Nicholas hauls down a rebound in traffic and scores. 34-30 Prep after three.

4th quarter - Wroten’s first outside shot, a 3-pointer with 3:36 left ties the game at 36. He scores again on the second of two Prep turnovers for a 40-36 lead with 2:14 to go. Looks bleak, but Nicholas scores with 16 seconds left and it goes to OT

 

OT - DeAndre Taylor’s first basket puts the Bulldogs up. Ryan Long’s rebound ties it. But Wroten goes inside for a 44-42 lead with 1:45 left. The Bullpups miss a shot and Taylr hits two free throw. Prep down by four points with 45 seconds remaining. Nicholas rejected with 28 seconds to go - time’s on Garfield’s side.

Final score: Garfield 48, G-Prep 44. Glenn Brooks’ two FTs with 6 seconds left iced the win.
