HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL: Panthers advance with overtime win over Keller

ABILENE The Permian boys basketball team used an overtime surge to defeat Keller 67-66 in a Class 6A area round matchup Friday at Abilene Wylie.

Ben Saldivar and Tremayne Baty combined for 36 points in the victory, with Race Herr contributing 14 points and Jamobrione Anderson recording 10.

The contest came down to the final seconds of the overtime period, where Baty was fouled driving to the basket.

He converted his two free throw attempts and Herr blocked a last-second layup from Keller to seal the win.

Brooks Bohr led Keller with 13 points, while Wyatt Bell and Parker Hannah scored 12.

Permian (26-8 overall) will face North Crowley in the regional quarterfinal round, with details of that contest still being finalized.
