It Takes Ot, But CV Triumphs In Its Opener

 

Boys basketball

Central Valley’s basketball season began late because of the school’s State 4A football championship.

Once the Bears made it to the court for the first time Saturday, North Central made them stay longer.

Todd Millar hit a 3-pointer with 45 seconds left in overtime and Marc Hinckley added crucial free throws as the Bears squeaked by the Indians 62-59 in a Greater Spokane League game at NC.

Hinckley hit 1 of 2 free throws with 10 seconds left in regulation to force OT. He added two free throws, for a five-point lead, after Millar’s 3-pointer.

Chris Allen and Chris Blotsky combined for 43 points on 15-for-38 shooting from the field for NC (0-3, 0-1).
