SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Pine Ridge forced overtime on Thursday and went on to beat Tea Area 70-69 in double overtime at the South Dakota Class A boys basketball tournament.

Jordan Fechner’s free throws with 18 seconds left proved to be the game-winners after giving the Titans (16-8) a 70-66 lead. Fechner had 13 points.

The Thorpes (20-3) got within 70-69 but Jacob Dreamer’s long 3-pointer as time ran out missed the mark.

Jeff LeBeau had 20 points, Jacob Brown 15 and Dreamer 13 for Pine Ridge.

Tarin Smallfield had 30 points and 14 rebounds for the Titans. Gunnar Ensz had 12 points.

Ki-Jana Grey Grass’ layup with 10 seconds left in regulation tied it at 54-54 and Tea Area turned the ball over as time ran out.
