Meadow Heights eliminated in overtime

Sunday, February 26, 2006

The Meadow Heights boys basketball team's strength from beyond the 3-point arc finally was matched, and it came at the worst possible time for the Panthers.

Meadow Heights' eight 3-pointers were canceled out by East Carter County's eight treys Saturday, and the Panthers fell 88-86 in overtime in the first round of the Class 2 District 2 tournament at Bloomfield.

The fourth-seeded Panthers, who had set the national record for 3-pointers in a game (36) earlier this month, played its final game without senior starter Michael Collier, who was out due to illness. Collier averaged 16 points in his final five games of the season.

"In the first quarter, we were nervous," said Panthers coach Tom Brown, whose team shot 5 for 17 from the field in the first quarter before shooting 50 percent the rest of the game. "Without Collier, it was different out there.

"They played a great game, but we just couldn't buy a bucket when we needed it."

Meadow Heights trailed by seven points at halftime but used a 14-0 run in the third quarter to go ahead by 10. East Carter countered by hitting five of seven 3s at the end of the third, reducing Meadow Heights' lead to six.

In the final quarter, East Carter drained three more 3s and sent the game to overtime on a tip-in with 0.2 seconds remaining.

East Carter went ahead 88-86 in the final seconds of overtime before Meadow Heights lost control of the ball without getting a shot off.

Anthony Bollinger led the Panthers with 32 points, followed by Terry Wagner with 20 and Heath Fulton with 18.

Meadow Heights, which will lose all five starters to graduation, ended its season at 18-7.
