PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Marion Center sophomore Brodey Thompson may not have been included on the Carl A. Truance Holiday Classic All-Tournament team, but his three-pointer at the buzzer lifted the Stingers past the Punxsy boys' basketball team Thursday night in front of a near-capacity crowd in Punxsutawney.
The Chucks (3-3) were ahead 49-48 with 9.3 seconds left before Daniel Triponey missed the front end of a one-and-one. As Marion Center's sharp shooting Alex Woodrow, the tournament MVP, raced down court, he was met by one of Punxsy's tallest players â€” Luke Janocha.
