Clinging to a 68-67 lead, Watson skied to snag a rare second-half miss from Hiram's Leonard Foster with less than 10 seconds remaining -- hanging on to the ball inside a maelstrom of flailing arms before heading to the free throw line to gain a little breathing room with two made shots. The junior then forced a turnover on the ensuing inbounds pass that Tray Harrison charged down as time expired.
“Coach is always talking about boxing out, and that’s what made it for me tonight,” Watson said. “I saw (Foster) was a little awkward when he shot it, so I just got underneath the basket and jumped as high as I could.”
