Spencer Wilson's three-point play with 1.3 seconds remaining gave the Walnut Ridge Bobcats a 50-49 win over the Sloan-Hendrix Greyhounds in senior boys 2A-2 basketball action Friday night at Imboden.

Walnut Ridge led 15-11 at the end of the first quarter, but the Greyhounds moved in front in the second period to lead 24-20 at halftime and 38-36 after three quarters.

Sloan-Hendrix was leading 49-47 with nine seconds to play and a Greyhound player at the free throw line. The Hounds missed the front end of the one-and-one and Walnut Ridge's Martin Crisler grabbed the rebound and pushed the ball up the court. Crisler missed a jumper from 10 feet, but Wilson rebounded the miss and scored while drawing a foul. Wilson sank the free throw to put the Bobcats in the lead. Sloan-Hendrix was unable to get a shot off in the final 1.3 seconds.
