George Washington nails last minute basket, advances to Final 4

DENVER - The No. 5 seeded George Washington Patriots will once again head to the Final 4 in 5A basketball.

A crazy ending to a close game, the Patriots advance after Jon 'il Fugett somehow hit a last second shot over 6-foot-8 forward John Harge to take a 42-41 lead against the No. 13 seeded Smoky Hill Buffaloes with only three seconds left on the clock.

Fugett pulled off the miraculous shot after two missed rebounds followed by a traveling call against the Buffaloes.

George Washington will face No. 1 seeded Rock Canyon following their win against No. 8 Overland.
