Mihailovich's heave propels Panthers in triple OT
Potomac Falls junior guard Lukas Mihailovich banked in a shot from half court as time expired to land the Panthers a 111-108 victory over Stone Bridge in a wild and crazy triple overtime game at Park View.
The Bulldogs needed some magic of their own just to get it into the third extra period, and once there, they fell behind. But leading by three points late, Potomac Falls fouled a Stone Bridge's Mike Hamrick beyond the arc. He connected on all three free throws to knot the game at 108. That's when Mihailovich - who already had 47 points on the night - received the inbounds pass, took two dribbles and launched the ball nearly 50 feet. It caromed perfectly off the backboard and through the net to give the Panthers their third straight win to start the season.
Mihailovich finished the night with a career-high (uh, yeah, clearly) 50 including five three-pointers.
