Wyatt Crowley contributed 15 points and eight rebounds for the Patriots (8-6, 6-4), who rallied from a 12-3 deficit after one quarter.

“We were down early and we were losing the whole game until the fourth quarter,” CV-S coach Terry Brandt said. “They were up, 44-40, but we made a run and went up, 48-46, with 5 seconds left.”

The Indians were then hit with a technical after Crowley drew a foul for a 1-and-1 opportunity. Crowley made all four shots for the final margin.

Tommy Worobey’s 15 points paced the Indians, who received 14 from Roman Hula.
