Sahmir Jones finished a scooping layup attempt with 22 seconds to play to lift the Pleasantville High School boys basketball team to a 50-49 victory over Middle Township.
Middle Township (7-7) missed a contested three-point shot with five seconds to play.
Middle trailed by 10 points at 30-20 at the half but rallied in the second half to take a lead as large as three points in the final three minutes. But the Panthers missed a couple of critical free throws and also gave up a basket on an offensive rebound after a Pleasantville missed free throw in the late stages.
Jalen Freeman (12) and Mack Selby (10) led Middle in scoring. Jacob Valeus (15) and Divine Anderson (13) each scored in double figures for Pleasantville (9-5).
