What an exciting night! Jerome moves on past Minico in double overtime. Not only does Jerome survive another night, they have earned the birth to a seed in the state tournament! The Tigers won 77 to 76.

The Tigers led the whole night until 4th quarter where Minico stepped ahead. The boys were able to tie up the score with seconds left putting the game into overtime. In the first over time the team was struggling to get some baskets and were at some point down by 5. However, this was not the end. The Tigers were able to tie up the score at the last moment and again sending it into double overtime. In the second overtime Jerome and Minico went back and forth constantly. Minico seemed to want to help Jerome take home the win because they received two technicals in the second overtime.

Head coach Joe Messick said that he can’t say enough about the kids and their effort. He also said it was very special they earned a ticket to state! 
Jerome hasn’t been to state since 2012!

Come out and watch the boys as they compete for District Champs Thursday night in Burley at 7, (2-23-2017)
