Portersville 61, Broadfording 52

ERIE, Pa. -- Broadfording made a miraculous comeback in the final seconds to force overtime, but Portersville pulled away in the extra time Saturday to turn the Lions away in a losers' bracket game at the National Christian Schools Athletic Association Tournament.

Down four with 13.3 seconds left in regulation, Broadfording (21-12) came up with two steals using its full-court press. Jordan Whitt scored off the first steal, and Armando Miller was fouled while trying to convert the second steal into a game-tying layup after receiving a pass from Matt South. The ball circled the rim and did not fall, but Miller made the free throws to tie the game at 47 and force overtime.

Miller had 20 points and 12 rebounds for the Lions. Whitt had 10 points and six rebounds, and Gabe Hirsch added 12 rebounds, four assists and three steals.
