Down 47-45 with 5.8 seconds to play and needing to move the ball the length of the court, the Cats inbounded the ball to Danny Henjum near half court, who found Drew Morgan for a long buzzer-beating three from the right wing to give Columbia Falls the victory.

The Wildkats led by as many as 25 in Corvallis before settling for a 50-35 win over the Lady Blue Devils.

Ryley Kehr led the way with 18 points while Trista Cowan added nine, Madysen Hoerner scored eight, Savvy Ellis had six, Josie Windauer scored five, LaKia Hill had two points and Hannah Schweikert and Lauren Falkner both scored one.
