Bradshaw boys' basketball claws out victory, awaits playoff fate


Bradshaw Mountain boys 49,

Mingus Union 48

Thanks to a dramatic, come-from-behind 49-48 victory over Mingus Union on Friday in Cottonwood, the Bradshaw Mountain boys' basketball team concluded the 2012-13 regular season on a five-game winning streak.

Nonetheless, the Div. 2, Section 2 Bears are not a lock to qualify for the state tournament.

D-2 No. 26-ranked BMHS (19-8 overall, 14-4 power point record) entered the last day of the campaign rated eighth in D-2, Section 2, which would give them the final seed into the eight-team sectional tournament next week at Greenway and Thunderbird high schools in Phoenix.

"That (Friday's win) should get us into sectionals," Bradshaw coach Doug Beilfuss said. "We'll find out in the next couple days. The boys just didn't want our season to end, and they hung around and battled."

Sectionals helps decide which teams get into state, as well as their seeding. However, only the top 24 squads in D-2 qualify.

On Friday, Lucas Herman saved the day for the Bears, who were playing without leading scorer Tyler Inglehart, who was ill.

With the game tied at 48-48 and 2.8 seconds left in regulation, Bradshaw's Anthony Biasetti missed a pair of free throws that could have iced the win for the visitors.

But Herman grabbed the offensive rebound on the second Biasetti miss, was fouled, and headed to the charity stripe. He drained the first free throw and purposefully missed the second as time expired to seal the win.

Three players scored in double figures for Bradshaw. Christian McKay scored a team-high 15 points, Biasetti registered a double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds, and Skylor Clinton had 10 points and eight boards. Herman added nine points.

The Bears trailed 31-23 at halftime and 43-32 at the end of the third quarter before outscoring the Marauders 17-5 in the decisive fourth period.

"Anthony Biasetti made some huge defensive stops for us, and (guard) D.J. Gonzales had some huge steals," Beilfuss said.
