12/10/2013 - BOYS BASKETBALL: Pius X Upsets Norris In OT

By Jeff Motz

Pre-season Class B No. 10 Lincoln Pius X made just enough free throws to earn a 43-42 overtime victory over Class B No. 9 Norris Tuesday night at Bishop Flavin Gym.

The problem, 4-of-12 shooting from the free throw line in the last minute of regulation and the overtime period.

Pius X (2-0) had a chance to win at the line with 2.8 seconds left, after Brandon Utrup stole the ball from Norris' Jake Peterson and raced to the other end for a layup, only to be fouled before going up to the basket.  Utrup missed the front end of the one and one, ultimately sending the game to the extra frame.

The Thunderbolts were up 43-39 when Jakson Reetz hit a three-pointer for Norris to close the gap to one.  Utrup found himself back at the line with seven seconds left in overtime and missed two free throws.  Jake Peterson raced down the floor to give the Titans a chance to win, but missed a layup just before the buzzer.

Pius X led 22-13 after the first quarter before leading 26-22 at halftime.

Utrup led Pius X with 18 points, while Reetz led all scorers for Norris with 14 points.
