Morrison may have been magical for Mead, but Hart was pretty heroic for Ferris.
Curran Hart drove the length of the court in the final 7.5 seconds, raised up and hit a 15-foot baseline jumper to give the Saxons the comeback victory and the third seed in next week’s Lamb-Weston/Group Health Regional.
Ferris (17-6) battled back from a 12-point third-quarter deficit (31-19) to lead 42-41 on Adam Seaburg’s drive with 24 seconds left, the last of his team-high 14 points.
But the Wildcats’ Derek Brown scored on a baseline drive with 10 seconds left, his only two points of the night, to set up Hart’s heroics.
“I wanted to make up for all the shots I missed,” said Hart, who finished with 10 points. “Up until then I thought I had a pretty crummy game.”
Ferris 44 — Mt. Spokane 43
Mead 81 — Central Valley 77
Davis 76 — Richland 69
Pasco 50 — Walla Walla 35
