DELPHOS — St. John’s senior Ryan Koester drained a deep 3-pointer from the right wing with 1.1 ticks remaining Saturday night and junior Andy Grothouse picked off a desperation length-of-the-floor pass as time expired as the Blue Jays held off Lincolnview 37-34 in non-league boys hardwood action at Robert A. Arnzen Gymnasium.
Koester led the Blue Jays (10-4) with 15 markers (3 treys) and Grothouse added 10.
On behalf of the Lancers (7-8), junior Justis Dowdy netted 11 and sophomore Chandler Adams sprung for 10.
In junior varsity activity, the Lancers grabbed a 44-37 victory.
Both units are back in action Tuesday: the Jays visit long-time archrival Lima Central Catholic (postponed from Jan. 5) and Lincolnview hosts Lima Temple Christian.
