WISTER — If a team has only one lead in a game, that squad hopes it comes at the final buzzer. That wish became true for the Wister Wildcats basketball team Saturday night at the Wister Gym in the Class 2A District Tournament.
Wister's Cody Luman scored a basket as time expired as the Wildcats downed the Howe Lions 42-41 to win the district title.
The girls' title game did not have such a suspenseful ending as the Lady Lions roared right past the Lady Wildcats 74-36 to win the district championship.
