It’s called March Madness for a reason! The Braham Bombers use a miracle three with time winding down in regulation to eventually get past Mesabi East, 86-79, in overtime.  With his team trailing by three, Ben Thiry nailed a long triple with two seconds left to send the game to the extra session.  The sophomore finished the night with 17.  Freshman Tyler Vaughan led Braham with 25 points.

Hear Vaughan talk about Tuesday’s win:
