Caden Stoffer scores 15 points after the end of the 3rd quarter

CEDAR RAPIDS — Caden Stoffer scored 15 points in the fourth quarter and overtime, and Cedar Rapids Prairie outlasted Cedar Rapids Washington, 70-65, in a non-conference boys’ basketball game between Mississippi Valley Conference rivals Friday night at Washington High School.

The Hawks (9-4) overcame a buzzer-beating 3-point bank shot by Washington’s Jesse Sellers at the end of regulation.

Prairie scored the first three points of overtime, on a free throw by Gabe Burkle and a layup by Elijah Ward, and led the rest of the way.

Ward led all scorers with 22 points. Stoffer added 17, and Jackson Nove added 12.

Quincy Underwood paced Washington (3-10) with 15 points and nine rebounds. Jamar Thumon scored 14 points, and Riley Pankey supplied 12 points and nine steals.

Stoffer’s 3-pointer with 47 seconds left in regulation put Prairie ahead, 54-52, then he added two free throws shortly thereafter to make it 56-52.

But Pankey hit a trey, then Sellers banked home another to force overtime.
