With Dunham trailing by three points and the ball in his hands Friday, Jordan Wright dribbled up the left side of the court and made a pull-up 3-pointer with 1.5 seconds left to force overtime, an additional four minutes that allowed the Tigers to dispatch Madison Prep 57-50.

Just six seconds earlier, Wright had missed a free throw that would have tied the game.
