Gordon basket seals Hobo comeback

Published: Monday, February 3, 2014 at 01:42 AM.

Tee Calloway hit two free throws with 1:48 left in the fourth quarter to give the Hoboes their first lead of the night at 49-48.

Twenty-one seconds later Bryant hit a free throw to tie the game at 49-49 setting up the heroics by Gordon.

Gordon’s game-winning 3-pointer was the only shot from beyond the arch the Hoboes hit in the game.

As seniors Hartzog, Strickland Rorech and Johnson left the home court for the last time in the regular season Gordon showed why the future looks bright for the Hoboes.

Strickland led the Hoboes with 21 points. Cooper and Hartzog each scored nine. Smith had six points, Calloway four and Gordon three.

The Hoboes open play in the District 1-1A tournament at 7 p.m. Tuesday when they host Bethlehem.
