The Flagstaff Eagles rebounded from a 31 point loss in Prescott last month to beat the Badgers in Flagstaff 70-69.

Prescott jumped on top early as the freshman duo Zane Gaul and Uriah Tenette combined for 25 first half points. The Badgers held their largest lead of 11 after one quarter, but the Eagles came back in the second behind Nick Sneezy, who led Flagstaff with 23 points.

The cold the Badgers suffered on the outside, and the willingness of Flagstaff to go inside, brought the Eagles back to catch the Badgers at 27.

Leading scorer Jason Parent struggled and was held scoreless till 1:30 left in the half. Parent knocked down his first basket, a three, following it with a breakaway slam dunk, to give the Badgers a 32-27 lead. Logan Jex three in the final seconds of the half made it an 8-0 run, but Nick Sneezy responded with a last second three of his own to make the score 35-30 at the break.

Prescott came out firing unsuccessful three point attempts, giving Flagstaff opportunity. Nick Morrow’s kiss off the glass tied the game at 37. Once again though, the Badgers responded with the tie in their face. Baskets by Gaul, Tenette, and a pair of buckets by Jake Hilton, put the visitors on top 46-37.

Flagstaff took a much needed timeout and it paid off. Max Fritsch, Sneezy, followed by a game tying three by Morgen Quotskuyva, tied the game at 6. Tenette’s midrange jumper put the Badgers back up 48-46, but Sneezy hot a shot at the buzzer to tie the game at 48 heading into the final quarter.

The teams exchanged baskets, but Flagstaff scored on a three by Fritsch with four minutes left to go ahead 57-56, their first lead of the game. The Eagles added to their lead as the Badgers shooting went cold.

Prescott lived from the perimeter early, but ultimately it cost them, while the Eagles used a good mix of inside and outside shooting to come back. The Badgers made just one three pointer out of 12 attempted in the second half. Flagstaff’s spread offense took off precious seconds, as the Eagles patience paid off with easy buckets to go up 64-56.

The Badgers had one last run in them, and it began on a free throw by Tenette, a steal by and two free throws by Parent to cut the deficit to 64-59 with :49 left. The two combined for the next seven Prescott points. The Eagles made their free throws to lead 70-66 with :04 left. The Badgers Jason Parent made his final shot, a three as time ran out. There was a question as if Parent was fouled, and the teams seemed to be waiting for the officials to rule on the play, but the officials conversed briefly and ran off the court.

Besides Nick Sneezy and his 23 point and 6 rebounds, Flagstaff got a big game inside by Nick Morrow, who had 12 points and 13 rebounds.

Prescott ends the regular season dropping two of their last three, but will host a first round playoff game next week.
