Fond du Lac topped Kaukauna 82-76 Thursday night to claim sole possession of third place in the tough Fox Valley Association. Senior Luke Loewe had a big night, scoring a team-high 23 points to lead four players in double figures.
His shot at the buzzer of the first half was his most dramatic however. After Kaukauna point guard Jordan McCabe hit a three-pointer with three seconds left, Fond du Lac grabbed the ball quickly and in-bounded to Loewe, who took one step and let fly from the opposite free throw line with a defender in his face. The horn sounded a split second after he released it, and the ball traveled more than 60 feet before rattling home to give Fondy a 42-33 halftime advantage.
