Bears Capture 2OT Win in Taylor on Tuesday
Taylor- This game had a little bit of everything, as this game was close from start to finish. The Bears would claw theirselves to a 76-73 double-overtime victory, as they geared up for their conference tourney next week in Caddo Hills. The Bears had a two-point lead at the half, and Taylor used a big third quarter to take the lead heading into the final quarter. Spring Hill would go on to outscore Taylor 17-13 in the fourth to force overtime. Maverick Mills would go on to score 10 of his game-high 25 points in overtime to help propel the Bears to victory. 

Offensively, Maverick would lead the Bears with 25 points, as he was 1 of 3 Bears in double figures. Austin Stone scored 17 points, as Austin had a big first quarter where he scored 8 points to get the offense going early. Andrew Wylie added 12 points, including going 4-4 from the free-throw line in the 4th quarter/overtime. Jakob Perry would score 8 points, Blane Tuttle would score 7, and Jackson Putz would add 2. The Bears head to Bradley on Friday for the battle of the Bears, as they look to spoil Bradley's Senior Night.
