Tyrus Hosley buried seven 3-pointers, including the game-winner with two seconds left as Evergreen secured the No. 3 seed to the district tournament.

Evergreen will host Mountain View at 7 p.m. Monday to open district.

Battle Ground rallied from an 18-point second-quarter deficit to tie the game twice late in the fourth quarter.

After the Tigers tied it 61-61 with 16 second to go, the Plainsmen weaved the ball down court before getting it to Hosley, who hit from 25-feet out.

“It was from 25 feet out asnd he had a hand in his face, but he rattled it in,” Battle Ground coach Wes Armstrong said. “He had seven 3s and the majority of those were contested. He just hit some really good shots.”

Hosley finished with 33 points, and Greg Washington added 20 for Evergreen.

Kyle Cahoon had 18 to lead Battle Ground.

“I’m just really proud of the way our guys came out in the third quarter and battled to get back in it,” Armstrong said. “It was by far our best half of basketball this season, and hopefully we can carry that into district.”

Battle Ground will travel to Skyview on Monday to open district.
