Comets piece together strong finish to edge Prophets
Better late than never
PROPHETSTOWN – For 28 minutes, the Newman boys basketball team's play against Prophetstown was a recipe to get beat.
The Comets came up aces the last 4 minutes, however, and pulled out a 55-52 win over the Prophets. Newman finished the game on a 13-5 run, and that included an after-the-fact 3 at the buzzer from Prophetstown.
Newman (13-3, 5-1 Three Rivers) went 1-for-10 from 3-point range, missed 11 of 14 free throws in the first three quarters and was out-rebounded 33-31 by a smaller team, but all those sins were forgiven with a fantastic finish.
