PIERRE -- Six points. That's all the Winner boys basketball team needed to score in overtime of the Region 6A championship on Tuesday. The Warriors held Cheyenne-Eagle Butte to five points in overtime to win 43-42. "It was such a great atmosphere," Winner head coach Brett Gardner said. "We were able to get one more bucket with 9 seconds. It was an exciting game, and it's unfortunate that one team had to come up short." The last time Winner (21-1) was in the Class A state tournament was in 2012.
