Kylan Boswell, a sophomore guard for Corona Centennial, refused to let his team lose Monday night in a fantastic nonleague basketball game against host Ribet.
He made a three-pointer as the buzzer sounded in regulation to send the game into overtime. He finished with 29 points as Centennial came away with a 79-75 victory. Another sophomore guard, Jared McCain, clinched the win with two free throws with six seconds left in OT.
Centennial (13-1) trailed the entire game in regulation after opening a 2-0 lead. Ribet (3-`1) is loaded with top players. Tre White finished with 21 points, Tyler Powell 20 and Barrington Hargress 14.
But the Huskies stayed in attack mode and got hot in the fourth quarter. When Mike Price of Ribet missed the second free throw of a one-and-one with seven seconds left in regulation, Centennial had a chance. That’s when Boswell delivered his game-tying three. Donovan Dent finished with 20 points, McCain 12 and Aaron McBride 10 to support Boswell.
