Hesston outlasts Highland in overtime for region win

The Hesston College men’s basketball team continued its second-half surge with a 67-66  overtime win versus Highland (Kan.) CC on Wednesday, Feb. 5. The win, Hesston’s fourth straight, improves the Larks to 8-15 on the year (3-2 in Region VI) after starting 4-15 (0-2).

Darrion Martin (Houston) led Hesston in scoring with 27 points. Jordan Tanner (Houston) added 18 points. Tanner’s pair of free throws with under three seconds remaining in the extra period iced the win for Hesston after Martin’s three-pointer a possession earlier pulled Hesston to within one.

Hesston travels to Lincoln, Neb., for a non-region game against Central CC beginning at 3 p.m on Sunday, Feb. 9.
