Many in the crowd thought Drew Erskine was reacting to having his round-winning 3-pointer wiped out by having his foot on the line.
It turned out, he had a cramp, and was in pain. But for a moment, it looked like a dramatic reaction from last year's runner-up in the 3-point competition to falling short to his opponent because of a small error.
Josh Thompson of Oklahoma City Capitol Hill and Cole Wozniak of Victoria East needed extra shots to settle the winner of Wednesday's 3-point competition at the Victoria Classic, with Thompson finally coming out on top after the two traded shots for three rounds.
It wasn't new to the 6-foot-5 junior for the Redskins, who also needed extra shots to break a tie with West senior Nic Bufford the round before.
Sixteen players competed in the event in front of a good crowd Wednesday afternoon. The field included seven players from East and West, including the late addition of Ian Sharpless, who joined as a last-second replacement for a player who wasn't in the building.
