They needed two extra sessions to do it, but the Wayzata boys basketball team was able to beat the Edina Hornets 86-84 on Friday night in the final tune-up before the postseason begins for both teams.
Trojans senior Kellen Taylor made a pair of free throws down the stretch in the second overtime to put his team over the hump. The win bumps the Trojans record up to 19-6 overall.
Senior guard Jerrod Peterson led all scorers with 26 points. Taylor and senior guard Jamar Franks each finished with 16 points. Senior forward Eren Cur also finished in double figures with 14 points.
The Trojans will find out where they are seeded in the section 6AAAA tournament sometime this weekend. Quarterfinal play in the section is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, March 10.
The teams in section 6AAAA include fellow Classic Lake Conference teams Hopkins, Minnetonka and Armstrong along with St. Louis Park, Minneapolis South, and Minneapolis Southwest.
