Boys' basketball: Taft pulls out overtime victory

February 5, 2011 |  7:22 pm

Spencer Dinwiddie scored 12 consecutive points at the end of regulation and overtime to lift Woodland Hills Taft (21-2) to a 49-42 overtime victory over Concord De La Salle in the Nike Extravaganza. Dinwiddie finished with 16 points, the same as teammate C.J. Blackwell.

Dinwiddie's three-point play with 1:06 left in regulation tied the game at 32-32.

De La Salle's defense and slow pace resulted in a low-scoring game. Taft led, 16-15, at halftime and 22-21 through three quarters. Travis Pacos had 17 points for De La Salle.
