Scott City wins OT thriller over NMCC, 66-64

Wednesday, January 23, 2008

The 12th win of the season for the Scott City boys basketball team came in thrilling fashion.

Jay Simmons hit about a 30-foot shot with one second left in regulation to force overtime, and the host Rams went on to beat New Madrid County Central 66-64 Tuesday night.

"It was one of the most unbelievable shots I've seen," said Scott City coach Lance Amick, whose squad is 12-4. "He was just about falling out of bounds and there was a kid hanging all over him. I don't know how he made it."

Simmons led the Rams with 24 points and he added eight rebounds.

Alex King had a double-double with 20 points and 15 rebounds, Caleb Estes added 10 points.
