Chauncey Collins was hoping to get to the line.

When he didn't hear a whistle following his fadeaway jumper with less than five seconds left, Collins feared the game might be over.

But Collins' shot bounced once, then twice on the rim before going in and giving the OKC Storm a 52-51 win over Carl Albert to take the Titan Classic.

“I was just trying to go to the hole and draw a foul,” Collins said. “It wasn't really the best shot, but it went down. I was expecting the whistle, but when it hit the rim for the second time, I knew it was going in.”

The Storm led for all but about two minutes of the game, but Carl Albert took the lead, 51-49, on Jared Price's shot with 47 seconds left.

The Storm's Neavan Morgan got to the line with 15 seconds left with a chance to tie but missed the second free throw. Morgan grabbed his own rebound, though, keeping things alive for Collins' shot after a timeout.

Collins led the Storm with 16 points to earn Most Valuable Player honors. Kole Talbott added 14.

Hayden Howell led Carl Albert with 14 while Cameron Warren had 15 rebounds.

MEMORIAL WINS BRUCE GRAY INVITATIONAL

Mustang pushed Edmond Memorial, but couldn't take down Class 6A's No. 2-ranked team. Aaron Young had 16 points to lead Memorial to a 62-52 win in the championship game of the Bruce Gray Invitational at Deer Creek.

Young was perfect at the free-throw line in six fourth-quarter attempts to help the Bulldogs close the door. Memorial led by 18 with 5:56 to play, but Mustang cut it to 48-43 in the final two minutes.

Tyler Holcomb added 15 points for Memorial. Mustang was led by Garrett Goble with 25 points.
