Highlights/key moments: Bow led by nine at halftime, but a big third quarter for the Pride put them ahead by two points going into the fourth. Tied with 2.8 seconds left, Sylvester hit a buzzer-beating jumper from the elbow, his first varsity points of the season, to win it for MV.
Coach’s quote: “Our defense was solid all game. We stalled on offense in the third quarter and MV executed well. You hate to lose at the buzzer like that, but I loved the fight we had all game.” – Bow’s Frank Moreno
“Jared got the ball into his hands and made a basketball play, and the basketball gods were smiling on us. ... We played defense like we were supposed to in the second half and held them to just 12 points.” – MV’s Tim Mucher
