Suttle saves Aurora Christian at buzzer
Feb 23, 2013 12:23 AM -
Ryan Suttle knew all the angles. Off an inbounds play with 6.4 seconds left and the score tied, the senior guard was in the right place at the right time to rebound Cory Windle's missed 3-point shot and score in one motion. The basketball fell through as the horn sounded for a 59-57 Eagles victory over top-seeded IC Catholic Prep on Friday in the Class 2A Westmont regional final. "I just saw Cory going up for the shot and I knew that if he missed it's going to be backside and it was going to be a long rebound. I just put myself in the right position. I was just there at the right time, I guess," said Suttle, who scored a game-high 21 points with 7 rebounds for the third-seeded Eagles. Aurora Christian (19-11) moves to the Byron sectional semifinals at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday against 29-0 Winnebago, a 62-52 winner over Oregon. The Associated Press' No. 2 team in 2A, Winnebago beat the Eagles 70-57 on Jan. 29 in Aurora.
