Sequim trailed in OT

In the extra session, the Wolves trailed by 3 but fought back and tied the score at 56 with 37 seconds left on a pair of free throws by Anthony Pinza.

Lavelle Smith missed a shot for Renton giving Sequim possession with 7 seconds remaining on a back court inbounds.

Alex Barry got the ball for Sequim, but lost control of his dribble at the mid-court stripe.

Lee corralled the ball, turned towards the basket and eyeballed a trey from the edge of the center circle.

The game-winner singed the twine, setting off bedlam in the Renton rooting sections and the jubilant team mobbed Lee at center court.

Lee finished with 9 points.

Wolves led by 7 in 4th quarter

The Wolves led by 7 with 2:25 remaining in regulation after 2 free throws by Rory Kallappa made it 49-42.

Renton scored the final 7 points of the fourth quarter with Smith, the game-high scorer with 17, canning a freebie with 19 seconds to go.

Sequim turned the ball over in the final seconds and Lee missed a chance to win the contest at the regulation buzzer, his shot circling the rim and out.

Renton was paced by Jonathan Patterson with 10 points, Skykiel Milord 7 and Justin Pienh with 6.

Jayson Brocklesby had 16 for the Wolves, Gabe Carter 12 and Alex Barry chipped in 13.
