After a long discussion, the referees decided to put .4 seconds on the clock, and Heze was awarded three free throws. Heze nailed all three to go up 32-31. Some of the players on the Oakridge bench ran on the court with excitement, but forgot there was still time left. The team was given a technical foul, so Clover was awarded two free throws and the ball. Clover nailed the first free throw, but missed the second; the game was tied at 32.
