Banks’ overtime basket sends Westfield boys to victory

The Westfield boys basketball team got its first win of the season in exciting fashion Tuesday evening.
Zach Banks made a short floater that went in the rim as the buzzer sounded to get the Shamrocks past Greenfield-Central 44-42 in overtime at The Rock. With the victory, Westfield improved its record to 1-2 for the season.
The ‘Rocks led 11-6 after the first quarter and 24-17 at halftime. The Cougars chipped away at Westfield’s lead throughout the second half, and the teams were tied at 34 at the end of regulation.
Banks finished the game with 23 points, making three 3-pointers along the way. Caleb Welch scored 10 points and also led the rebounding with five boards.
Westfield is back in action Saturday night when it travels to New Palestine.
