UNDERWOOD – Tenth-seeded Clinton-Graceville-Beardsley erased a six-point deficit in the final 1:30, ending the game on a 9-0 run to upset seventh-seed Underwood 39-36.
After the Rockets took a nine point lead into halftime, the Wolverines opened the second half on a 10-0 and lead changed hands multiple times from there. The Rockets were able to build up a six point lead with 90 seconds left, but costly turnovers, bad clock management and missed free throws gave the Wolverines a chance, and they took full advantage.
Underwood was just 2-12 on free throws while CGB went 11-15. With the win the Wolverines are 5-17 and face second seed Parkers Prairie on Thursday night at 7:00.
The Rockets season ends at 7-19.
