TROUTDALE — The Mt. Hood CC men's basketball team was a snap of the fingers away from leaving the gym with a victory Wednesday night, but then Chemeketa center Jalen Schlegel swooped in and changed everything.

His offensive putback with half-a-second left sent the game to overtime, and the Storm never trailed again going on to win 81-76.

The Saints missed their first six shots of overtime, but still found themselves within a point when Oleg Marandyuk pulled up in the lane and put the ball gently off the glass with 0:20 on the clock.

Chemeketa's Kevin Brazille hit a pair of late free throws, forcing Mt. Hood to hunt a 3-pointer to extend the game. The Storm's Keith Bowen Jr. picked off a pass on the perimeter to secure the victory.
