Last-second shot sinks Bulldogs

Kuna’s 6-foot-5 freshman post Tyler Dubowsky scored on a rebound in the center of the key with 1.5 seconds left to lift the Kavemen to a 52-51 victory over Baker in a non-league boys basketball game Friday at BHS.

“The ball just didn’t bounce our way,” said Baker coach Craig Woods. “The kid made the rebound and made the shot.”

Baker had a chance for the winning basket with 1 second left, but Walker Kaseberg’s desperation toss from three-quarters court was off the mark.

The game should never have been that close. Baker outscored the Kavemen from the field, but shot just 10-of-18 from the free throw line.

“Free throws. That was the difference in the game,” said Woods.

Baker is shooting in the mid-50-percent range from the line for the season — a figure Woods is not happy with.

“It’s got to change, or we’re going to be in trouble in close games,” he said.

After Dubowsky’s basket, Baker called a timeout. But, Woods said, the Bulldogs hadn’t faced this type of situation yet this season.

“We really didn’t have a set play for the end of the game,” he said. “I’ll take the blame for that. I did not prepare the kids for that kind of close game. But it was a good learning experience. Like we’ve said before this preseason, this one game is not going to win or lose a championship.”

Neither team could pull away in the game. The largest lead for either team was five points.

Derek Blankenship led Baker with 14 points. Kennan Richards added 13.
