Mason Archambault of Rapid City Stevens heads to the hoop against Pierre Thursday night.
Pierre wins thriller over Rapid City Stevens in first round of Boys Class AA Tournament
Gary Matthews - March 17, 2017

RAPID CITY, S.D. - Pierre came back from adversity several times Thursday night; and made it count down the stretch as they defeat Rapid City Stevens in a double-overtime thriller Thursday night.

Stevens came in to this year's state tournament with high hopes -- and they dominated Pierre early.

But, a couple of 3-point shots late in the fourth quarter for Pierre and some missed free throws for Rapid City Stevens sent the game into overtime.

After one overtime -- the two teams remained tied -- and in double overtime, the Raiders shooting woes from the free throw line didn't go away.

Stevens hit just 1 of 7 free throws down the stretch, and Pierre took advantage with a basket in the closing seconds to win 76-75.

Mason Archambault had a huge night for Stevens; scoring 32 points and 3 rebounds.

Peyton Zabel was equally as good -- leading Pierre with 31 points.

The other night game at the State AA also went to overtime, where Sioux Falls Lincoln outlasted Huron 56-47.

Earlier in the day, Aberdeen Central edged Brookings 56-52 and Sioux Falls O'Gorman rolled past Harrisburg 61-47.

Rapid City Stevens will face Brookings in the consolation semifinals Friday.
