LAKEWOOD — Green Mountain and Battle Mountain boys basketball teams got some extra court time late Friday night on Dec. 6.
The Rams and Huskies went double-overtime in the semifinal of the Paul Davis Classic at Green Mountain High School. Green Mountain eventually took a 55-50 victory.
Senior Blake Schell opened and closed the 2OT period for the Rams. Schell’s layup off the opening tip of the second overtime period gave Green Mountain a 47-45 lead. His pair of free throws in the final seconds clinched the 5-point victory.
Schell finished with a game-high 13 points. Junior Austin Peterson finished with 11 points for Green Mountain.
Battle Mountain was led by senior Liam McKenny (11 points) and junior Luis Truillo (10 points). A highlight for the Huskies came from senior Dalton Patterson, who nailed a 3-pointer at the buzzer to end the first half. The shot came from well beyond the half-court line.
The Rams (3-0 record) completed a sweep in the tournament with a 52-47 victory over Class 4A Jeffco League rival Evergreen (3-1) in the championship game Dec. 7, at Green Mountain High School.
Schell has a team-high 13 points against the Cougars. Fellow senior Matt Schlieper pitched in 10 points and a team-high six rebounds in the victory that kept the Rams undefeated on the season so far.
