Fielden comes through late for Hulbert

HULBERT — Mason Fielden made two free throws in the final 10 seconds to lead the Hulbert boys to a 52-51 triumph over Vian Thursday night at Rider Fieldhouse.

The Riders led 41-33 after the third quarter, but the Wolverines used a 16-6 run in the first 4:23 of the fourth quarter to take their first lead of the second half.

Vian held a 51-50 lead at 3:09, and neither team scored again until Fielden’s first freebie with 9.9 seconds to play tied the contest. He missed the second, but got his own rebound and was fouled by Zac Vickers with 6.7 ticks left on the clock.

Fielden missed the first free throw, but he swished the second to put his team ahead. Vian called timeout to draw up a play, but a buzzer beater by Eric Casey would not fall as the Riders collected the win.

“I just told myself to ignore the crowd, follow through and bend my knees,” Fielden said of his game-winning free throw. “Once I got fouled that second time, I knew we were going to win.”

Fielden finished the contest with 13 points.

Hulbert’s Craig Potts led all scorers with 17, and he also added eight rebounds. Parker Taylor scored 11 and Chris Vance contributed 10 for the home side.

Hulbert (7-2) shot 46 percent from the field (21 of 46) and made 2 of 8 from downtown.

“We’ve been really focused on team play over these last few games, and the work ethic is getting to where it needs to be,” Hulbert coach Darron McCord said. “We showed a lot of toughness tonight to be able to keep our composure when Vian took the lead late.”

Casey and Shane Ross both scored 14 to pace the visitors. Vian shot 36 percent from the field (20 of 55) and just 21 percent from 3-point territory (4 of 19).

The Wolverines held a narrow 17-15 edge after the first quarter, but Hulbert took 31-26 lead into intermission.
