PRINCETON — In Friday’s Princeton Holiday Christmas Tournament, Mount View’s Kobe Brown hit a buzzer-beating 3-pointer to send the Golden Knights into overtime with PikeView.

Unfortunately, that apparently used up Mount View’s allotment of miracles for the night.

The Golden Knights were again trailing by three points when Sidney George stroked a shot at the top of the key that stripped the net with one second remaining in the first overtime period. Officials ruled that his foot was just over the line, however, and the Panthers retained a 52-51 victory.

“They hit a great shot, it was just 19 feet, four inches and that was lucky for us,” said PikeView head coach Colton Thompson, whose team trailed 35-31 headed into the final period.

“We tried to adjust and made things harder and forced the tempo a little bit to try to get the game back in our favor. Things worked out. They just hit a big shot down the stretch (in regulation) that we made some mistakes to allow to happen,” he said.

Seth Meadows scored 16 points to pace the Panthers (2-1), successfully drawing fouls for a 10-for-13 showing at the free throw line and hitting a pair of crucial 3-pointers. Hunter Hill hit three treys as he poured in 14 points. Wayne Brookman and Zach Ruble scored seven apiece.

Jaquane Imes scored 12 points to pace Mount View (0-2), which led 12-11 after one quarter and was up 21-19 at the half. De’Moni Edwards scored 12 points and Ellis Bryson added nine.

“MountView definitely came out with a great game plan to attack us. We had to work very hard. We knew they were going to hit the glass hard. We didn’t do a great job of that in the first and second quarter,” Thompson said. “They killed us on the offensive glass. They probably had 20 points tonight off second-chance opportunities. We didn’t box out and they put it back.”

Mount View coach Gary Brown thought the Golden Knights got a second chance opportunity of sorts with George’s perimeter shot. But it was too close to argue. Besides, correctlng what let the Panthers back in the game during the last period of regulation was foremost in his mind.

“I thought they switched up on us and went to a little weave and were getting into the lane and making a couple of plays. And then Seth got open for a couple of threes that kind of pushed the lead out a little bit,” said Brown, both of whose losses have been within a bucket.

“We had to fight to get back in it. Once we did, we had a chance. But we came up a little short,” he said.
