The Crusaders found themselves up 82-76 with 1:30 remaining in the game. At this point, two three-point shots from Micah Cramer and Nate Blasko and two defensive stops would give the Tigers possession of the basketball with the game tied at 82-82 with 30 seconds remaining. Gerard Oray slashed to the right side of the hoop and banked in the eventual game winner with under five seconds remaining, allowing the Tigers to escape with the 84-82 win.
Braiden McDonald scored 16 points for the Tigers, and Micah Cramer and Ethan Clasen both added 15 points. Nate Lauer added 9 points and 9 rebounds.
Next up for the JV is an away game across town at Aquinas College tonight.
