SOUTH WAYNE - With the Black Hawk boys basketball team trailing Parkview by three points late in the second half, coach Charlie Anderson drew up a play for senior Kyle Lovelace.

When the first option wasn't there, the Warriors adapted and Black Hawk senior C.J. Leuzinger knocked down a 3-pointer with 2 seconds to go to send the game to overtime. Black Hawk junior Conner Meyer came through in the extra session to lead the Warriors to a 66-63 overtime win over the Vikings Tuesday.

"We drew up a play for Kyle Lovelace and they (Parkview) reacted and it wasn't there," Anderson said of Leuzinger's last-second 3-pointer. "It was a second reaction play. The kids did a good job of reacting."

Meyer, who scored a game-high 26 points, converted a critical three-point play in the extra session to give the Warriors a 63-60 lead. Black Hawk (9-4, 4-3 Six Rivers East) made 4 of 5 free throws in overtime to seal the win. Leuzinger added 16 points.

Parkview junior Eli Hoscheit scored a team-high 22 points. The Vikings hit 10 3-pointers as a team. Parkview led by eight points in the second half.

"They got hot from 3," Anderson said of the Vikings. "We were able to fight and claw our way back."
