The third match-up of the season between the two teams was one to remember.
Hillsboro led late, but Connally was able to tie it at 69 with a minute left. A last second shot by Hillsboro was off the mark, and the two teams went to overtime.
Ultimately, it was Connally who triumphed in the extra period by a score of 80-75. The Cadets have beaten the Eagles in all three of their match-ups this season.
Next up for Connally, they will head to Johnson Coliseum in Huntsville for the Region III-4A Tournament. They will battle #1 Silsbee on Friday at 8:00 p.m.
