Moore’s Justin Beam added two more from the foul line on the next possession.

The game seemed to be over, but Southmoore quickly cut the lead to 61-59. Wilson hit 1-of-2 from the line and the Lions led by three with 45 seconds left. The SaberCats missed a shot and fouled Moore’s Zeke Guy on the other end. He hit both free throws to put the contest away.

“We just took too long to wake up,” Southmoore’s Preston Smith said. “It was there. We had to grab it. It was there. We just didn’t wake up in time.”
