LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The 3rd ranked Estacado boys are heading back to the State Tournament in Austin after edging Wichita Falls Hirschi 67 to 64 in overtime.

Estacado trailed by 2 in regulation with 6 seconds left. WF missed a free throw and Clarence Willard went length of court, hitting a shot at buzzer to force overtime. Future Red Raider Kevin Wagner missed 2 free throws late in regulation but made 4 big ones in OT.

Estacado heads back to State where last year they lost title game to Dallas Madison in overtime.

In 2A, Idalou knocked off #5 Jim Ned 51 to 44. Idalou finished 2nd in district to Littlefield, but a day after Littlefield lost to Jim Ned, Idalou topped the Indians after trailing by 5 to start the 4th.

The 2nd ranked Nazareth boys rallied in the 2nd half to top Vega 45 to 36 at South Plains College to win Region 1 title and advance back to State.

The Swifts trailed by 5 at the half but outscored the longhorns 16 to 7 in the third and then 10 to 5 in 4th to win the regional for the 2nd straight year. Nazareth was led by Sage Black's 17 and 15 from Sid Sheffey.
