Pleasant Grove ( Utah)
won the fourth-longest boys basketball game in Utah history on Friday night when it outlasted Lehi (Utah)
109-107 in a four-overtime barnburner.
The two teams combined to shoot 99 free throws in the foul-infested contest, which saw five of the winning Vikings' top eight players foul out. Matt Conway
was high with 30 points. Riley Court
scored 27 points and Forrest Pincock
21 before they fouled out.
Seldom-used reserve Mitch Brown
also figured prominently in the victory by drilling a 24-foot 3-pointer with seven seconds left in the third overtime to extend the game to its final extra session. Blake Cleveringa
, a 6-foot-4, 170-pound senior, was a one-man gang for Lehi. His 54-point explosion enabled him to become one of just six Utah players to reach or exceed 50 points in a single game.
Pleasant Grove coach Randy McAllister told the Salt Lake Tribune, "Clevenger was just a machine. We just knew it was going to go through him."
