The difference in the outcome of Saturday night’s Medora-Cannelton boys basketball game was easy for coach Andrew Evertts to point out.
“I think free throws stuck out right away. We missed 13, and they missed two. That’s huge,” the Medora coach said after Cannelton went home with a 71-69 win in overtime on the Hornets’ homecoming. Cannelton made 16 of 18, while the Hornets hit only 14 of 27.
The game was tied at 60 at the end of regulation, and Roy Edwards gave Medora its last lead with two free throws at 1:21 to set the score at 66-65. Cannelton’s Brandon Cook then hit five free throws to put the visitors on top 70-66.
