Camdenton takes down Rolla with DeLaurent's buzzer beater
It was quite a night for Camdenton senior Paxton DeLaurent.
The Lakers hosted Rolla Tuesday night and the senior put up 40 points, scored his 1,000th point in the process and hit the game-winning shot to deliver a 67-64 win over the Bulldogs.
As the clock started to wind down with less than 30 seconds remaining, Brandon Pasley initially put the Lakers ahead by hitting a floating shot with 11.9 seconds left. However, the Bulldogs tied the game back up with a pair of free throws. Camdenton actually turned the ball back over to Rolla on the ensuing inbounds play, but the Bulldogs proceeded to do the same, setting up DeLaurent's heroics.
DeLaurent inbounded the ball to Pasley who raced up the floor and found a trailing DeLaurent for the buzzer beater behind the 3-point line and the rest was history.
Joel Mason provided nine points for the Lakers, Pasley added six and Treyvor Watson finished the night with five.
