WYOMING, Mich. — Wyoming erased a large deficit Friday against Grand Rapids Christian and came back to win, 62-61 thanks to a pair of Monte Parks free throws with 6.7 seconds to play.
"For us to quit you have to kill us and we aren't dead yet, Wyoming head coach Thom Vander Klay said. "No question that we have a ton of poise and we are able to bounce back. We've been down before and you can't doubt them, even in the first game we were down and came back and took the lead although we ended up losing the game."
Deigo Ledesma led the Wolves (8-1, 14-1) with 18 points, Marion Parks scored 15 and Menalito McGee added 13.
"It was loud in the gym so we just had to talk more and communicate and just box out and rebound," McGee said. "We know we could definitely bang with these guys so we knew it was going to come down to the wire so we just closed it out. It means a lot it was basically for the conference championship so we bite, scratch, claw came out with a dub at the end."
Grand Rapids Christian (7-1, 14-1) got a game-high 20 points from junior Kobe Bufkin.
Michigan head coach Juwan Howard was part of the capacity crowd to see Bufkin play.
Wyoming will play at Hudsonville (14-1) Tuesday night. Grand Rapids Christian will host East Grand Rapids (7-2, 12-4)
