The Boys Varsity Basketball team traveled down 84th street to take on rival Byron Center on Tuesday night. The game turned out to be one of the most exciting games in recent memory as it took two overtimes to complete with South coming out on top 69-66. At the end of regulation, BC held a 4 point lead, 51-47, with 8 seconds left and the ball. SC junior Elliott Grashuis stole the inbound pass and found fellow junior Sam Meengs in the corner who hit a 3 and got fouled with 5 seconds left. He made the freethrow to complete the 4 point play and to send the game to overtime. The game was back and forth and both teams made plays into a second overtime where South hit some freethrows down the stretch to pull out the win. The Sailors had 3 players in double figures – Meengs with 19, junior Tyler Rynbrandt with 17 and Senior Tyler Buwalda with 10. SC had a +11 rebounding edge and had 15 assists. Next on the schedule is at Wyoming Friday night at 7:30pm.
