Down 11 to its rival, things weren’t looking goof for Anderson in Saturday’s title game of the Cubs’ own tournament.

When it didn’t work out that way, Teague was still the game-decider as the junior found the rebound off a Jesse Brophy last-second 3-pointer and hit the putback as time expired to lift the Cubs to a 38-37 win over rival West Valley in Saturday’s title game of the Anderson Tournament.
