WRHS BOYS BASKETBALL: Tyler’s clutch free throws solidify Hornet victory
Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good.
In a Jan. 18 White River’s boys basketball team game with Sumner, Hornet coach Rick Tripp admitted, “We did get a little lucky.”
The fourth quarter clock was winding down when WRHS’s Jason Tyler made a couple of clutch free throws, tying the contest with the first one and putting WRHS up 51-50 with the second.
