The Kingwood High School boys basketball team extended its winning streak to five games with a pair of District 22-6A victories last week. The latest win was an overtime thriller. It took a last-second three-pointer from Nick Luckett to turn back Dobie, 65-62, in the extra period at home on Friday. It was Luckett's second three-point field goal in overtime.

The game went back and forth with Kingwood holding a 16-15 lead after one quarter, but Dobie enjoyed a 27-26 edge at halftime. The Mustangs knotted things up at 44-all after three quarters and the lead changed hands three times in the fourth quarter before the teams settled on a 55-55 tie, forcing overtime.

Billy Gould, who led the Mustangs with 15 points, hit four consecutive free throws in the extra frame to give Kingwood a 59-55 lead, but Dobie scored the next four points to even things out once again at 59.

That's when Luckett took over with his first three-pointer. Dobie answered with a three-pointer of its own before Luckett produced the dagger as time ran out.

Walker Blaine scored 14 points for the Mustangs and Nick Neuman added 10 more. 

Kingwood started the week with a 59-38 victory on the road over Pasadena Memorial, racing out to a 27-11 lead at halftime with scoring help coming from Tommy Neuman and Jake Nichols. Mason Carlos dropped in seven points in the third quarter.

The Mustangs, 11-4 overall for the 2019-20 season, are back in action this weekend at the Barbers Hill Gulf Coast Classic, Thursday through Saturday.
