Michael Clements could see his opportunity for a game-winning shot and all he had to do was get the ball.

Indiana University-bound Yogi Ferrell had just banked in a three-pointer from the top of the key to give Class 2A, No. 1 Park Tudor only its second lead at 53-52  in the fourth quarter, forcing host Roncalli to call a time out with 11.2 seconds remaining in the game.

The host Rebels passed around the ball and nearly made a costly turnover, but the ball went in to Clements, who eventually got the ball and put it off the glass at the buzzer before the ball fell through the net to give the Roncalli a 54-53 victory before a sellout crowd in a boys high school basketball game on Friday night.

"I just went for it after the ball had gone up and hit the top of the backboard and I got it back," Clements said. "I knew I would be wide open on the other side because all of the players from Park Tudor tried to go after the ball, and I just got it and put it in."

Perry's 26-point Outburst Leads Rebels Past Irish PDF Print E-mail

Bridget Perry does not like to lose to anyone -- but especially not to rival Cathedral. Saturday night, Perry did everything possible to help her team register a win against the Irish in a girls regular season basketball contest.

The Class 4A, No. 10 Rebels are coming off a roller coaster ride of emotions this past week that started with the death of senior Katie Brewer's father and had a chance to end the week on a much better note against the Irish.

Cathedral looked in position to pull off an upset when it had a chance to take the lead on consecutive possessions  late in the fourth quarter, but failed to hit a shot. The Rebels bounced back to take the lead and Perry's  basket with 2:22 remaining in the game put the Rebels ahead for good.

The Irish missed a shot and the Rebels grabbed the rebound and got  the ball to Perry, who eventually ended up with the loose ball to drive down the lane and  put it in for a 45-41 lead with 1:46 left to play in the game.

Katie Brewer proved she has a will of steel, and a resolve to do what she does best, even in the face of unbearable heartbreak. The Rebels senior dressed and started for a game against the Scecina Memorial Crusaders just hours after laying to rest her father, Michael, who lost a long battle with cancer Saturday morning.

The senior, who will be playing for Butler University next fall, said she played because her dad would want it that way.

"It was not a hard decision to play tonight," Brewer said. "Playing the game also helped me take my mind off of everything that has happened.  It was a good release for me."
