Constantine’s four-point lead with 90 seconds to play in regulation evaporated and the Falcons ended up losing to visiting Delton Kellogg 59-53 Thursday in a Kalamazoo Valley Association tilt.
Falcons coach Chuck Frisbie said turnovers and missed free throws hurt his team at the end of the fourth quarter and in the extra frame. Of Constantine’s 20 turnovers in the contest, 16 were committed after halftime.
Delton’s Jeff Minehart buried a 3-pointer with four ticks to go in overtime to seal the deal and finish with a game-high 22 points for the Panthers (2-2, 1-2)
Perry White led the Falcons (0-4) with 21 points, and Joey Steiner and Luhk Mullendore each added nine. Cody Ley and Jon Doering added five points apiece and Anthony Bontrager finished with four.
