Vaudrin leads Streaks to OT victory vs. Tigers
LAKE 60, MASSILLON 59 (OT) Already having sent the game to overtime, Lake senior Chaese Vaudrin took advantage of a rare second chance in the extra session Tuesday night to give the Blue Streaks a thrilling win.
Just 30 seconds after misfiring on a free throw that would have completed a three-point play and given his team one-point lead, Vaudrin drove to the basket, drew a foul and had a shot at redemption with just 25.4 seconds left. Vaudrin’s left-handed stroke found nothing but net to put the Blue Streaks up 60-59.
Massillon used its last timeout with 12.1 seconds left to set up a final shot. Massillon’s Terrance Block drove the lane, drew contact and lofted a 12-footer that came up short. The ball went out of bounds as time expired, as Massillon fell to 7-8.
Block gave the Tigers their last lead at 59-57 when he nailed a floater in the lane with 38 seconds left.
Vaudrin scored just 12 points, but accounted for every one of Lake’s seven overtime points. Alex Belinsky led Lake with 21 points, while Mitchell Spotleson added 15 points inside.
