Prep roundup: Buzzer-beating St. Charles North boys basketball downs Waukegan
PONTIAC – The St. Charles North boys basketball team was on the money at the end of quarters Thursday, canning 3-pointers to beat the buzzer in each of the first three quarters as the North Stars opened the Pontiac Holiday Tournament with a 66-58 win against Waukegan.
After Alec Goetz (first quarter) and Quinten Payne (second quarter) hit buzzer-beaters, point guard Tony Neari launched one from half-court that dropped to give North (7-4) a 42-35 lead entering the fourth quarter.
“The game was starting to take on the same feeling as the first time we faced them [a one-point loss], when we kind of pulled away and they came just close enough to come back and win,” North coach Tom Poulin said. “ ... And then when Tony hit that 3, our guys really seemed to perk up and have a ton of confidence going into the fourth.”
