Scottsburg buzzer beater sinks Braves



The way Friday night’s Brownstown Central game was going, it seemed that the team that had the ball last was going to win.

Treyton Owens’ 3-point shot at the buzzer sparked Scottsburg to a 33-32 Mid-Southern Conference win on the Braves’ floor.

That one-point different just came from too many missed opportunities, Brownstown coach Dave Benter said.

“The big difference was we missed a couple of layups, we missed some 3s and we missed our free throws late,” Benter said. “We had a chance to seal the game at the end.”

The Braves shot 2-for-7 and missed both free throw attempts in the fourth quarter when they scored five points.

“I thought we were the tougher team and controlled the whole game,” Benter said. “Hopefully, that’s growing pains. It’s early in the season, and we’re playing a lot of guys that haven’t been in these situations, but our guys played hard.”

Brownstown held a 32-25 lead following a basket by Jalen Tiemeyer with 4:40 remaining.

The Warriors closed to 32-30 on a 3-pointer by Brantley Deaton with 3:15 remaining.

Clay Chastain had a chance to increase the Braves’ lead but missed a front end of a one-and-one with 7.9 seconds remaining to set the stage for Owens’ basket.

Both teams started out slow with Scottsburg holding a 3-0 lead three minutes into the game.

Tiemeyer made two free throws at 4:48 to light up the Braves’ side of the scoreboard.

Chastain and Isaiah Wineinger made 3-point baskets in the final minute to give the Braves a 10-5 lead going into the second quarter.

The Braves (1-2, 0-2 MSC) used baskets by Derek Thompson and Lucas Hines to increase their lead to 13-5 at the start of the second period.

Chastain made another 3-pointer just before the buzzer to give the Braves a 20-13 lead at the half.

The Warriors came out hot at the start of the third quarter with a 7-0 run and tied the score at 20 on a layup by Hayden Cutter at 6:10.

The Braves closed the third quarter scoring on a 3-pointer by Chastain to take a 27-24 lead into the fourth period.

The Braves increased their lead 30-24 on another 3-pointer by Chastain with six minutes left in regulation.

Chastain topped the Braves with 16 points, Tiemeyer scored eight, Hines had four, Wineinger added three and Derek Thompson had one.

Owens topped the Warriors (4-0, 4-0 MSC) with 11 points.

Brownstown won the junior varsity game 57-35.
