through half of the final period, but Tivy turnovers led to a put-back by Respondek and a trey by Taylor O’Neal that put the Rangers up 49-44 with 2:45 left. Frausto’s 3-pointer and a Rangers turnover was converted by Farahani to tie it 49-all with 30 seconds left.
Smithson Valley worked the ball past the timeline and called time out with 8.1 seconds left. That set up the inbounds pass from Respondek to Young, who drove into the paint, scored on the layup and was fouled. He sank the freebie and left the Antlers 2.4 seconds for a miracle.
Jacob Frausto heaved the ball to Tucar Spellar, who was open for a heave from 25 feet out. The belli went in as the buzzer sounded, but Spellar had been called for traveling, negating the hoop and ending the game.
Young meekly protested the call, but raised his hands in frustration — not with the referees, but with his players. He chided Farahani and Josh Frausto at times during the game for not following instructions, which hurt more than fouls.
“We still had opportunities we didn’t capitalize on, so any way you look at it, I’m not going to make excuses,” he said. “We didn’t play well enough to win, and that’s what happens.”
Josh Frausto had seven points and Spellar and Brandon Taylor had two each for the Antlers. Price had eight,
Jesse Martinez seven and Johnson scored four for the Rangers, who got three from O’Neal and two from Mitch Keogh, who had three fouls in the first quarter alone.
“Mitch was in trouble and someone else had to step up, and Justin did,” Miller said. “One of the things we try to preach to the kids is to play together. Everybody knows that Brad is going to be our leader. But the others know they have roles to play, too. That’s what good basketball teams do.”
Smithson Valley plays New Braunfels in the first game of the River City Classic at 6 p.m. Thursday at Canyon’s Cougar Den.
Canyon 60, Bastrop 54
“It was good for us — we needed to win a close game," said Canyon coach Kenny Rotzler after the Cougars (7-1) were tested good by the Bears (5-4) at the Cougar Den.
Austin New scored 16 points and Isaiah Jackson had 19 for Canyon, which led by IO points when Bastrop began its comeback in the fourth.
“They knocked down three 3s on us, and we kept missing the front end of free-throws,” Rotzler said. The Bears got within two when Brandon Schubert made both ends on the line for Canyon, which went up by four and led for good.
“They had played some good teams,” Rotzler said of Bastrop. “But playing close games against good teams makes you grow up in a hurry, and I think it helped us tonight.”

BOERNE — Getting a win couldn’t have come at a more opportune time for the Unicorns, who polished off the Greyhounds — ranked No. 4 in the area and No. 9 in the state — in overtime.
Nick Miner’s steal of an inbounds pass and subsequent 3-pointer at the end of the overtime period, proved the game-winner for New Braunfels (3-8) over Boerne (9-3).
“I’m so excited for these guys,” New Braunfels’ first-year coach Chris Dial said. “We played like we’re capable of playing. After all the losses in the close games we’ve had, I feel like our personality is starting to come together.”
Tony Valadez passed toTino Hernandez, who hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer to leave both teams tied 68-all at the end of regulation.
“That was the kind of game this was — it went back and forth to the wire,” Dial added. “We were tied 25-all at halftime and we managed to keep their big 7-footer, Josh Lomers, under control.”
The Unicorns’ passing, shooting and press kept the game even against the Hounds.
“We just kept trading hoops with them all the way into the fourth quarter,” Dial added.
Hernandez had a breakthrough game for New Braunfels, scoring 15 of his 24 points in the fourth and overtime periods. Shane Fisher scored 19 and played well on defense and Valadez
finished with 16 — despite being in foul trouble late in the contest. Miner had two other 3s and a free throw to finish with IO.
“This was a great game for us, and the kids earned this win,” said Dial, whose team plays Smithson Valley at the River City tourney Thursday night.

The Cougarettes got 12 points from Bo Warm and IO by Kendra Clayton for their third win in four games.
“We played pretty well,” Canyon coach Terry Tennell said. “They were without their point guard, who got hurt, and it made a big difference.”
Mariad Cocke had nine points, Joan Friesenhahn had eight and Brittani Hackfeld and Stefany Anderson each scored seven for the Cougarettes (5-6) who will play at Smithville at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

SAN ANTONIO — It got ugly quickly against the Lady Mavericks, but the Unicorns lived to play another day.
“We played good defense at times,” coach Lance Hughey said. “But we were really hurt on the offensive boards. We really need to improve on that and on taking care of the ball better and getting it down the floor.”
Kellie Thomas scored 13 points, Christina Racanelli scored five and Blanca Harper added three for New Braunfels (5-7), which will play Leander in the first round of the Hays Consolidated tournament at 9 a.m. Thursday.
