3A: SNAKE RIVER 67, SHELLEY 65 (OT)
Jacoby Johnson made two free throws with 6.2 seconds left in overtime and then watched as McKay Cannon's 3-pointer at the buzzer missed its mark, assuring the Panthers a state championship. Johnson finished with a team-high 18 points and seven rebounds, while Curtis Keller had 12 points and Wyatt Wray added 10 points and seven assists. Cannon and fellow Shelley senior Chad Leckington paired up during the football season to win a state title, and nearly did so again in basketball.
