Editor's note: The story has been updated with the results of Wasatch Academy's final game of the weekend in the consolation championship late Saturday afternoon.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Wasatch Academy’s Damion Squire had a moment to remember Friday night on the basketball court.

Squire, who led the Tigers at the Bass Pro Tournament of Champions in Springfield, Missouri, had the ball in a tie game with the final seconds running off the clock.

With nothing to lose, the 6-foot UC Davis commit threw up a prayer from way, way downtown.

Swish.

Squire finished with 13 points and four assists, including the 70-foot buzzer beater that led the Tigers to a 68-65 win over Glendale in a consolation game at the Tournament of Champions.

Marvin Williams III added 20 points for Wasatch Academy (14-2), which competes as an independent school in the Utah High School Activities Association. Matt Bradley supplied 13 points and four rebounds for the Tigers.

Monty Johal scored a game-high 30 points to go with five rebounds and six assists to lead Glendale.
