MHC BOYS HOOPS - Barlow survives scare when Centennial's late-second 3 clips the back rim
by: David Ball Barlow center Cody Powers, 33, goes back to the basket after pulling down a rebound during Tuesday night’s win.

Barlow forward Kody Kennedy made a pair of big plays down the stretch to lift the Bruins to a 57-55 home win over Centennial on Tuesday night.

Trailing by three as the clocked rolled under two minutes, the home crowd was growing anxious for Barlow to make something happen.

Enter Kennedy.

The 6-foot-3 junior drove into the lane where a bump from a Centennial defender sent him flying away from the basket. The whistle blew, and Kennedy sank the off-balance shot for a three-point play that tied the score with 1:36 to play.

'We were passing the ball well as a team and looking for the open guy,' Kennedy said. 'I saw an opening and went for it, got bumped, threw the ball up there and it went in.'
