That was awesome! What an exciting game! I wish every kid could have that kind of moment at least once in high school! Congrats Zach, and the Owls!

Exciting finish, too bad the ref swallowed his whistle and didn't call the obvious charging foul when Dudley drove the lane and missed. Watch it again and tell me how that is not called? To not make the call is cowardly - if it's a charge in the 3rd qtr, it's a charge with 7 seconds left, too.

Not saying the non-call would have helped Century win (you don't shoot free throws on a player control foul anyway), the buzzer-beater shot was incredible and the Owls deserved the win. Just saying that the officials should have made that call and Century would have had the ball with a throw-in rather than trying to race up court and have the ball stolen. Congrats again to the Owls, what a great victory in front of their home fans.
