Packers headed to State with Alley-Oop Finish

16 Mar

We’ll have full video highlights on this tomorrow, but here’s the play Austin Packer fans will be talking about for years to come.

After the top-seeded Packers had scrapped back from six points down to second-seeded New Prague in the second half to take a one-point lead with 90 seconds remaining, the game came down to a last play.  With the score tied at 41, Austin’s coach Kris Fadness called timeout with 13 seconds left. Here’s the play he called, an alley-oop from Zach Wessels to Tom Aase for a dunk, and the resulting celebration:

March Madness, indeed!

The Packers are now headed to the Minnesota State Boys Basketball Tournament for the first time since 1982. They will open play on Wednesday, with the opponent to be determined tomorrow.
