Bishop Donahue Boys Claim OVAC Title in OT Thriller


Bishop Donahue pulled out an improbable 69-68 overtime victory in the Class A title game at the Wheeling Hospital Boys Basketball Championships at Ohio University Eastern.

Senior Josh Miller drained a 3-pointer to send the game to overtime. Miller finished with a game-high 23 points

And in the extra period, off a baseline inbound play, senior Jesse Padlow found sophomore Taylor Straughn, who buried a three with :01.7 left. Padlow finished with 21 points, Straughn added 19.

Tavon Jeter led the Blue Dons with 17 points, Jim Carnes and Joey Ewusiak had 17 each.
