The Zionsville Eagles hosted the Hamilton Southeastern Royals for a Friday night basketball game. Junior guard Riley Bertram made a three-pointer right at the buzzer to win the game in overtime 73-72. The ending to the Friday night game was similar to last year’s basketball season when Zionsville played HSE. HSE player made a three-pointer at the buzzer to win the game.

On Friday night, the Eagles led by nine at halftime and stretched their lead to fourteen with four minutes left in the third quarter. The Royals charged back with ten unanswered points to close the deficit to four at the end of the quarter. HSE took their first lead since the first quarter with ten seconds left in the game, before Isiah Thompson hit the second of two free throws to send the game into overtime.

After trading three point baskets Thompson put Zionsville ahead 70-69. The Royals, Jack Davidson hit a three-point basket with nine seconds left to give HSE a 72-70 lead. Thompson pushed the ball up court but it was knocked out of bounds with 1.8 seconds left in the game. Thompson inbounded the ball to Tyler Leedy, who quickly passed the ball to Bertram who delivered the game-winning three-point basket. When Bertram took the final shot the ball went back and forth before going in and the shot was good.

When Bertram’s shot went in the students stormed the court excited to see our team win the game. Overall Thompson finished with 23 points and Bertram added 22 points.

“The atmosphere was amazing so me and my boys made sure to send everyone home with a memory”, Bertram said.
