The Clinton Redskins boys basketball team saw their season come to a screeching halt on Monday night, on the road at Sand Creek for the first round of the state tournament, 50-44 in overtime.
Clinton led the entire game, until the Aggies hit a 3-pointer with 4 seconds left to tie the game. The Redskins had a good look at the buzzer, but it didn't fall.
"I feel so bad to have our season end this way. We were up 8 with 30 seconds to go, but we just couldn't seal the deal at the free throw line, which has been a problem for us all year," Coach Jordan Kelly said. "My heart breaks for our guys, especially our seniors who poured their heart and soul into this program the last two years. For that, I can't thank them enough."
Clark Nelson ended his career with 15 points and 8 rebounds. Justin Felts had a double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds.
"Robbie Campbell, Clark Nelson, and Nick Shoner will truly be missed from our program next year. They were high-character young men, and unbelievable leaders for our program," Kelly added.
The team did show improvement this year, finishing with a 9-11 overall record, and finishing in 4th place in the TCC with a 7-7 record.
