Boy’s basketball continues its record-breaking performance with a buzzer-beating win Friday night against Cypress Bay High School for the regional title.

Coach Matthew Colin described the 40-37  win as “a defensive slugfest capped off by a half-court 3 pointer at the buzzer by De’Ante Perez.”

The shot was captured on video and made national headlines earlier this week.

The team will now travel to Lakeland for States to compete in the Final Four and face a tough Evans team. Tune in Friday night at 6:00 PM to watch the semifinal game live.
