#3 – Brookfield gets late hoop to win thrilling boys basketball title.
Brookfield made a habit of winning close games en route to the Class M boys basketball championship game. So despite leading most of the game, when Bloomfield made a late push, ultimately tying the game on a pair of Josh Moore-Henry free throws with 19 seconds left, the Bobcats did what they did all tournament. They responded. Lucas Joshi’s put-back with four seconds remaining was the team’s final answer as they won the thrilling Class M title game and earned the program’s first title.
