Big finish lands Bruins the Trail Classic crown
6A BOYS BASKETBALL
Barlow Trail Classic title game
Barlow put on a fourth-quarter flurry to down Canby 55-48 in the title game of the Barlow Trail Classic boys basketball tournament Wednesday night.
The Bruins moved in front early in the fourth quarter on a play 80 feet from its basket when Canby's Jace Cates was whistled for an intentional foul after getting in a shoving match under the hoop. Barlow's Ransom Norquist hit both free throws, and Parker Joncus sank a 3-pointer from out top. Malik Wilson followed with a steal and a layup.
In less than a minute, a one-point deficit turned into a 40-34 Bruins' lead.
Joncus would hit a pair of late 3s to seal the victory, finishing with a game-high 28 points.
The win marks the fifth time Barlow has won its holiday event.
