The Hickman Kewpies received all they could handle from Washington, but held on to advance to the Class Five Quarterfinals with a 53-49 overtime victory.
Chris Clark missed a free throw that could have ended the game in Hickman’s favor as the score stayed tied at 41 for the rest of regulation. The Kewpies needed every bit of Jimmy Whitt’s 15 points as his two-point bucket in the waning moments gave Hickman the lead for good, 48-47.
Cecil Williams added 10 for the #1 Kewpies, who have the uneviable task of having to go through a Kickapoo team in the Quarterfinal Round that will be playing in their hometown.
