Warriors knock off state champs

North Union Hallie Reese looked up at the clock and knew she had to get a shot up.  So the Warrior senior launched a heave from just inside the three-point line on the right wing, it banked off the glass and through the net to give the green-black-and-silver a heart-stopping 50-48 win over defending state champion Hull Western Christian.

The Class 2A regional final took place on Wednesday, Feb.21, two days later than originally scheduled due to weather, at Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn High School.

Fourth-ranked Hull Western Christian had tied the game at 48-48 on a basket by all-stater and Nebraska recruit Ashtyn Verbeek with 1:05 to play as North Union held for the last shot and called a timeout with 13.9 seconds to play.
