KEARNEY— Happiness, euphoria, heartbreak and frustration; Kearney felt all of these emotions in their 63-53 overtime loss to St. Joseph Lafayette Tuesday, Jan, 11, in the opening round of the Kearney Classic.

Down two points with the ball in their hands, Kearney had the final chance to tie the game and send it to overtime. Manny Linthacum took the ball on the left wing and brought it into the lane, but was stopped by the defense. Linthacum handed the ball off to Braxton Page, who took a very difficult contested shot over the Fighting Irish defense on the baseline. The shot went in as Kearney fans cheered their loudest of the evening as the crowd was treated to extra basketball.
