CEDAR RAPIDS — Two games. Two wins. By two points.

Wes Washpun spotted a wide-open Sean Bredl under the basket, and Bredl laid it in as time expired to give Cedar Rapids Washington a 49-48 victory over Cedar Rapids Kennedy in a Mississippi Valley Conference boys’ basketball thriller last night at Kennedy High School.

“Thank God Bredl was wide-open,” said Washington’s Josh Oglesby, who led all scorers with 21 points.

Washington (10-8 overall, 9-5 MVC) concluded a season sweep of Kennedy (12-6, 9-4). The Warriors won the previous game, 43-42, at Washington.

In that game, Washpun delivered the go-ahead points. In this one, he dished out the winning assist.

Kyle Lamaak hit the second of two free throws to give the Cougars a 48-47 lead with 5.4 seconds left. That was just enough time for Washpun, who dribbled up the floor and rifled a pass to Bredl, who converted just before the horn sounded.

Kennedy led, 45-36, when Christian French converted on a putback with 4:30 to go. But missed free throws — the Cougars shanked 7 of 10 in the fourth quarter — left the door open for Washington, and the Warriors slammed it shut at the end.

Oglesby’s 3-pointer tied it at 47-47.

“I’ve been shooting a lot, taking a lot of extra shots,” Oglesby said.

Washpun added 14 points and four assists for the winners.

Lamaak paced Kennedy with 19 points and seven rebounds. But even he wasn’t immune to the late free-throw woes. He made his first six foul shots, then finished 9 of 14.

  1. In the end, the clearly better coach prevailed, and humility once again trumped arrogance. Hard to say that’s not a happy ending. Pretty Boy Bob’s players froze down the stretch, ultimately leaving a guy wide open under the basket in the closing seconds of a one point game. Maybe a little less mirror time and barking would help, Bob.

  2. incredible, sorry you didn’t have the skills to play for Coach Fontana. It’s a really good program with a great tradition, so there are plenty in your shoes. Fine players just not good enough. Hopefully writing about him makes you feel better. He’s got pretty thick skin so it won’t bother him, in fact he’s probably glad to help out an old player.

    I bet there’s a lot of teams that don’t want to play wash in the post-season.
