Savages edge Buffs in OT

(Continued)

McALESTER —

Broken Bow forward Daekwon Cubit sandwiched two free throws around two McAlester misses, then Leffel scored his second to make it 71-66 Broken Bow with less than 30 seconds left.

“That’s the first time he’s ever shot it all year,” Woolsey said of Leffel. “He plays defense and rebounds, (but) two big buckets. Two big buckets.”

Keaton Slater scored off an offensive rebound for McAlester, but Cubit went 1-for-2 at the foul line, then Cole McKinney went 1-for-2 with 5.2 seconds left to put the game out of reach. McKinney also scored 20 for the Savages.

“We can score it in the paint, and we hit a couple 3s,” McKinney said.

McKinney added, “Especially in a high school game, free throws win you or lose you the game.”

Broken Bow as a team shot 12-for-17. McAlester shot 12-for-19.

The loss spoiled a night in which the Buff fell behind by 15 in the first half but came back to tie the game. Pascale started off McAlester’s second-half surge, scoring twice off offensive rebounds and getting a free throw out of the second to make it a 10-point game.

Jaylon Watson scored for Broken Bow, but Dawkins answered with two free throws. Tre Roberts scored for Broken Bow, and again Dawkins answered.

The Buffs just got Dawkins back from what Zike called a “partial tear” in the posterior cruciate ligament in Dawkins’ knee. Dawkins scored 23 for McAlester.

“I feel a lot better,” Dawkins said. “I don’t have any pain in it. I’m glad to be back.”

A jump shot from Boyle made it an 8-point game, then Pascale grabbed a defensive rebound and took it coast-to-coast for a layup. McAlester trailed by just 3 heading into the fourth quarter, and though Broken Bow pushed its lead back to 56-46, Erving’s layup and Dawkins’ free throw and 3-pointer made it 56-52 midway through the fourth.
