Derek Driskell hit a buzzer beater in the boys jv game and would win in overtime 46-42. The Wellington girls JV won 51-19.For the varsity boys, it was welcome relief after three straight defeats to start January.â€œWe really have had a bad taste in our mouth since Christmas break,â€ said Brian Buchanan, Wellington head boys basketball coach. â€œBut we came out focused and Iâ€™m tickled pink. We passed the ball and forced some turnovers.â€Three players reached double figures for Wellington. Trevor Nance had 19, A.J. Snipes 16 and Colin Reichenberger 10.The Crusaders never trailed in this one, opening with a 20-10 first quarter lead and adding to the point total at halftime 35-19. El Dorado would come back in the third quarter, shaving the lead to 43-34. But the Crusaders would eventually seize the momentum in the fourth outscoring the Wildcats 16-6.With the win Wellington improves to 6-4 and will now travel to Chaparral on Wednesday to play Ark City at 6 p.m. in the first round of the Roadrunner Classic.â€œThat isnâ€™t an easy first round opponent,â€ Buchanan said. â€œBut if we play the kind of defense that we played tonight, we should be all right.â€The bracket for the Chaparral tournament is here.
