Barton Community College sophomore guard Tyler Corley got to play the hero against Independence on Saturday night.
With time trickling off the clock in double overtime, Corley put up a desperate 3-pointer as the buzzer sounded.
Corley sank the trey, his only made 3-pointer in seven attempts, giving the Cougars a 112-111 win to end the Best Western Angus Inn/Cougar Booster Club Thanksgiving Basketball Classic at Kirkman Activity Center.
Corley finished with 33 points, leading a Barton comeback that started in the second half.
As time in regulation drew to a close, Corley and guard Darius Gibson attacked the basket and started drawing fouls.
Corley was 14 of 21 from the free-throw line, and Gibson, who finished with 22 points, was 6 of 10.
There were a total of 109 free throws attempted between the two teams and a total of 67 fouls called.
Isaac Williams finished with 14 points and nine rebounds, and Deriece Parks added 11 points for Barton.
Between games, Barton held a presentation to recognize those responsible for helping the school purchase a new scoreboard for Kirkman Activity Center.
Those recognized were Dr. Perry Smith, who represented Great Bend Regional Hospital, Dr. Randall Hildebrand, who represented Central Kansas Orthopedic Group and Best Western Angus Inn owner Loren Unruh and his wife, Gayle.
