Buzzer beater lifts Bobcats past Colbert
Cam Habada hit six three–pointers to lift Phil Campbell to a big area win over the Colbert County Indians Friday night. It was the last one, however, that was the biggest and clinched the game for the Bobcats.
With the game tied 61-61 and just a few seconds left on the clock, the Bobcats inbounded the ball from the sideline. Quentin Hyde dribbled to the right side of the court and handed the ball off to Habada. The lefty took one step and heaved the 24–footer toward the basket as time expired, draining the shot and getting the win.
To start the game, Phil Campbell jumped out to a 17-11 lead in the first quarter and extended that lead to 29-22 at halftime.
Colbert County trimmed the Bobcat lead to 44-39 at the end of the third quarter and tied the game shortly before Habada’s game–winning shot.
