Owens' last-second shot lifts Warner Robins to 1st state title
MACON, Ga. -- Jacolbey Owens' last-second 3-pointer lifted Warner Robins to a 67-64 win against Miller Grove Thursday night in the 5A state championship at the Macon Centreplex.
It's Warner Robins' first boys basketball state title in school history.
Owens' 3 with just 1.3 seconds left in the contest broke a 64-all tie.
"We didn't really have a game plan, but we were going to call a timeout," Owens said. "But I got him up in the air, I shot it and it went in. We brought it home. First one in history at Warner Robins, so that's big time."
"We were going to run the clock down and get it to either Nelson or Jacolbey," head coach Jamaal Garman said. "We ran it down, gave it to Nelson, Nelson gave it right back to Champ, Champ gave it to Jacolbey and Jacolbey just did his magic."
Owens led Warner Robins with 24 points. Nelson Phillips added 16 points and 10 rebounds, while Jaydon Norman had 13.
Miller Grove was led by Lorenzo Anderson with 19 points.
The Demons were 0-2 in their previous attempts to win a boys basketball state title.
