Are You Kidding Me?! Braham Wins with Improbable Comeback

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010 at 6:59 pm


The Braham Bombers must have ice running through their veins, because they stepped up against improbable odds, to beat Sibley East 60-59 in overtime, Thursday at Williams Arena.  Braham trailed 49-29 with under 6:00 to play, but a flurry of Braham triples catapulted them to a 25-5 run.  During that time, Ben Thiry knocked down four triples after scoring just two points in the first 30-minutes.

In overtime, Tyler Vaughan gave Braham a lead with a three on their first possession.  Both teams then exchanged buckets, and the Wolverines took a one-point lead when Marshall Bjorkland (33-points, 23-points) converted a three-point play.

Tyler Vaughan (29-points, 12-rebounds) then stepped up and knocked down the biggest free-throws of his career.  Vaughan was fouled on a jumper and calmly hit the pair with 2.9 seconds to play to give Braham a 60-59 lead.

The Wolverines couldn’t get a shot off in the end, and Braham, in one of the most exciting wins in school history, advances to play Friday at the Target Center in the state semi-finals.
