Alabama PG signee Collin Sexton missed the last two weeks recovering from a concussion.
Luckily for Pebblebrook coach George Washington, he was cleared to play in the regional title game against nemesis Westlake High School:
Sexton poured in 18 fourth-quarter points to help the Falcons mount a rally, and he tacked on 10 more during the 4-minute overtime period.
After Sexton and the Falcons scrapped their way back into the game in the fourth quarter, Pebblebrook finally took the lead at 71-70 on Sexton’s three-point play with 1:07 left to play.
Although Chuma Okeke hit a layup on Westlake’s next possession to regain to regain the lead and drew a foul, he failed to convert the three-point play, which would prove costly...
That gave Pebblebrook a chance to attempt a 3 with 1 second left in regulation. Sexton took the inbounds pass and got off the perfect shot just in time from near midcourt.
Collin seems to be exactly the type of player the current Alabama squad is missing: an elite scorer who wants the ball in his hands in crunch time. That buzzer-beater to force overtime was a thing of beauty: a catch-and shoot jumper off of the in-bound, contested, from 30 feet.
Nothing but net.
He is going to be special, folks. Full highlights below, courtesy of HoopDiamonds.
