Down big early, Redskins rise late
HERSCHER — It started with a 17-point first quarter deficit, then ended with sophomore guard Austin Patterson hitting a game-winning three-point field goal. That marked both the low and high water marks of the regional semifinal game for Morris as it completed a stunning comeback to beat Prairie Central 50-47 on Wednesday night.
Working from finish to start, Patterson hit the game winning trey at the top of the key off of an in-bounds pass from Even Bjelland in front of the scorer's table with two seconds left.
"Everyone in the stack went to their spot and the ball just floated to me," Patterson. "All I had to do was shoot the ball and hope for the best. It felt good. At first the shot looked like it was left a bit, but it ended up going in."
