Orthocinsational Play of the Week: Campbell County’s Garyn Jackson hits regional winner

via Terry Boehmker, NKYTribune: Campbell County coach Brent Sowder called a timeout with 6.3 seconds left in overtime and his team trailing by two points in the 10th Region boys basketball championship game against Harrison County on Tuesday at Mason County Fieldhouse.


There was no question in the coach’s mind about which player he wanted to take the last shot. The ball went to junior guard Garyn Jackson, who rushed up the sideline, did a couple of crossover dribbles to shake a defender and hit a 3-pointer as time expired for a 64-63 win.


“We practiced last-second shots the last three days and Garyn always hit the shot,” Sowder said. “We’d put up two seconds, three seconds, six seconds in different situations and Garyn always hit it, so he was the one to go to.”


That shot gave the Camels their fifth 10th Region championship and their first under Sowder. He became head coach this season after several years as an assistant.
