Billings Senior 63, Missoula Sentinel 50
Connor Kieckbusch hits a buzzer-beating three at the end of the first quarter to propel Billings Senior to a 13-5 lead en route to a 63-50 win over Missoula Sentinel Saturday afternoon.
Friday night hero Sam Beighle, who had the game-winning steal and lay-up with 2.5 seconds against Billings West a night earlier, cut the Spartans deficit to just five after a third-quarter three, but the Broncs never relinquished the lead on their way to earning a split on the weekend.
Senior improves to 2-1 with the win.

West rebounded quickly from a heartbreaking loss to Sentinel on Friday night, jumping out to a 39-27 halftime lead and increasing it to 55-36 after three quarters. Owens rested the entire fourth.
West moves to 1-1 on the season with the win, while Big Sky falls to 0-3.
