Senior tied the game at 48-48 with 9.7 seconds remaining. Daquavion Walker came up with a big play for West when he rebounded a missed free throw and converted a pair of his own foul shots for a 50-48 Wahawk lead. Walker then intercepted a Senior inbounds pass with :05 left and added another free throw to make it 51-48.

The Rams scored a layup as time expired for the final margin.

It was West’s fourth win this season over a Top 10 opponent.
