COLLEGE BASKETBALL: Peninsula men triumph in overtime against Olympic

BREMERTON — Peninsula held off a last-gasp 3-point attempt by Olympic and came away with an 84-82 overtime victory over the Rangers in a Northwest Athletic Conference men’s basketball win.

Olympic had two chances to take the lead back from the Pirates in the final 15 seconds of overtime. Looking for the last shot while down 83-82, the Rangers’ Ryan Mobley turned the ball over on a pass out of bounds while trying to find teammate David Tserger for a 3-point basket.

Kaelin Crane then hit one of two free throws with 2.2 seconds for Peninsula.

Olympic took the ball out of bounds and got it to Tserger on the left side of the court. Tserger dribbled upcourt and heaved a long 3-point shot while defended by the Pirates’ Trent Warren. Tserger’s shot was short off the glass, preserving Peninsula’s win.

Forks’ Marky Adams led the Pirates with a monster stat line. The 6-foot-10 post tallied 20 points, 16 rebounds and five blocks. Adams shot 1o of 11 from the floor in his 29 minutes of game action.

Point guard Colby Jackson scored 16 points and had four assists for Peninsula. Cameron Burton came off the bench to can 14 points, grab seven rebounds and dish out three assists.
