Cate Pulls Out Win in Overtime at Fillmore

Andy McHaig hit a free throw with 2.2 seconds left in overtime lifting Cate to a 61-60 Frontier League basketball win at Fillmore on Wednesday night.

Mark Pliso scored 19 points, and the Rams overcame a 30-point effort by Fillmore's Aries Vega.

Cate led by 10 (45-35) in the third quarter, but Aries rallied Fillmore and the Flashes took a two-point lead going into the fourth.

"Basketball is a game of runs and today was a perfect example of that," Cate coach Andy Gil said. "Very proud of the way we responded today and knuckled down and got stops when we needed. Today was fun to see."

Pierce Lundt had 9 points and junior Chris Bennett added 7 for the Rams.

Cate improved to 9-5 and 5-3 in league.

"These are good wins that will help prepare us for playoffs, and their gym was rocking tonight. It was loud and energetic," Gil said.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
