The Raiders used a fourthquarter surge to tie the game at 62-62 at the end of regulation.

In overtime, Garrett Allen hit a free throw to break a 69-69 tie with 15 seconds left and the Raiders held on for a 70-69 victory in a Central Buckeye Conference Mad River division thriller.

“We just continued to battle,” said Ben Logan head coach Cameron Saylor. “We were down 14 points after three quarters and kept cutting into their lead. It was a great team win and I’m very proud of our guys. Graham is a very good team.”
