PANA — By doing just enough down the stretch, the Vandalia Vandals survived and escaped with a 66-63 win at Pana on Tuesday night.
A wild finish ended with Pana's Adam Miller missing a potential game-tying jumper, as the Vandals made enough foul shots late to secure a rivalry victory.
"That was crazy," Vandalia Coach Brian Buscher said of the game. "The kids played through it, though. I've been coaching since 1999, and it always seems to be crazy when we come to Pana."
Buscher said his squad got it done in crunch time.
