LIVE: Packers win on layup in final seconds

Published 6:24pm Saturday, March 9, 2013

The Packers boys basketball team dodged a giant upset Saturday as Ajuda Nywesh made a layup in the final seconds to give Austin a 51-49 win over the Winona Winhawks in the Class 1AAA Sectional semifinal.

The undefeated and top-seeded Packers trailed by as many as 11 in the first half, their largest deficit of the season. Up 47-46, No. 4 seed Winona’s Dan Schwartz made a layup with less than two minutes to play to make it 49-46. But Joe Aase drained a wild 3-pointer to tie it up at 49-49. After a Winhawk turnover, the Packers held for the last shot.

The Packers will face the Red Wing Wingers in the sectional final and a chance to go to state.
