The Colony Knights boys basketball team pulled off the come from behind win over the Dimond Lynx to win the Doc Larson Roundball Classic. Colony didn't lead til late in the 4th quarter, thanks to a steal by senior Sullivan Menard and clutch baskets by Wyatt Baker and Patrick McMmahon. Colony sophomore Jeremiah Hersrud hit clutch free throws down the stretch which saved the Knights, when Dimond's Isaiah Moses hit a last second 3 and got fouled to bring the Lynx within one. Colony comes away with the win. 52-49.

"Really, our press and defense mostly. And also, taking care of the ball," Hersrud, who's teammates call him Swish, said. " But then, we had some really gritty plays by Colton Spencer and Sullivan Menard. They did really good."

In the girls bracket, the title belongs to the West Valley Wolfpack, who took the win over the Wasilla Warriors.

This game was close early on, but the Wolfpack started to rain threes, many by senior Jozey Martellaro, to get a 51-36 win over the Warriors.

"It felt amazing, it felt so good to come through with this team," Martellaro said with a giant grin. "We had a lot of confidence, we had a lot of nervousness but it was positive nervousness. We knew we were about to get something done, whether we came out with a win or a loss."
