NEW KNOXVILLE — The Wapakoneta Redskins are no strangers to games going down to the wire during this 2014-2015 season. The latest win was yet another instance of the Redskins coming through in the end.
Wapak’s Kodi Morgan knocked down a game-winning jumper with 13 seconds left to give the Wapakoneta boys basketball team a 45-43 victory at New Knoxville on Tuesday night.
“We’ve played in a lot of close games this year,” Redskins head coach Doug Selvey said. “I think those games helped us win this game tonight.”
