HOLLAND, Mich. -- It was a thrilling Division 1 regional championship between two OK Red foes in East Kentwood and Rockford at West Ottawa high school.

The Eagles would fall behind by 19 points in the fourth quarter but would storm back to take a one-point lead late in the game. However, in the final second, it was Falcon senior Christopher Brown knocking down two free throws to seal the 61-60 victory and regional championship.

East Kentwood junior guard Ja'moni Jones had the game-high 34 points to lead the way for the Falcons, who will face Okemos in the state quarterfinal.
