Stern's Trailers 117, Orthopaedic Institute 113
Shavar Reynolds hit three tie-breaking free-throws with 56 seconds left to cap a 34-point game and help Stern's (6-1) hold off comeback-minded Orthopaedic (5-3) to remain tied for first place heading into the final week of the JSBL regular season.
Reynolds also added nine rebounds and seven assists and went to the line for a technical foul shot and two free throws with just under a minute to go and the game tied at 110.
Orthopaedic rallied from a 21-point second-half deficit to tie the game at 110 before a loose-ball foul ignited the pivotal sequence, with Trevis Wyche making contact with one of the officials - seemingly incidentally, according to the video.
Wyche scored 26 points for Orthopaedic while Steve Harris led the way with 27 points and 17 rebounds and Deuce Mensah also put up a double-double with 19 points and 12 rebounds.
Jerome Hubbard added 19 points and Micah Seaborn poured in 18 for Stern's.
