Mountain Crest tripped up the Bears in overtime to claim the Region 12 win. Mountain Crest started off extremely hot from the field in the first quarter making what seemed to be every shot they took as they rolled out to a 7 point lead. The Bears fought back in the second quarter and as Parker Coombs made an improbable circus shot falling out of bounds at the buzzer the Bears owned a one-point lead at the half. From there it was nip and tuck the rest of the way and trailing by three with 8 seconds remaining in the game Mark Huber crossed half court and made a remarkable three pointer to send the game into overtime. Unfortunately for the Bears they did not have quite enough to win the game and ultimately fell by two. Mark Huber led the Bears with 37 points. Parker Coombs added 14, Kelton Summers 11 and Ren Fonnesbeck 10. Bear River made 17 three-point shots on the night.
