GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Hopkins held a seven-point lead in the final minutes before NorthPointe Christian stormed back.

NorthPointe was led down the stretch by Grant Baker, who had a game-high 24 points.

In the overtime period, a layup by Sam Vasiu would give the Mustangs a one-point lead in the final seconds. However, with just six seconds left on the clock, a floater by Viking sophomore Collin Weber went high off the glass and in, to give him 21 points on the night and put Hopkins in front, 63-62, with 5.9 seconds left.

The Mustangs got a look at the buzzer but couldn't get it to fall, as the Vikings improve to 14-4 overall and 9-2 in the OK Silver.
