Boys Varsity Basketball · Free throws lift Roos over Cove 69-66 by Clay Whittington

Killeen made free throws when it had to.

Trailing 66-65 with less than a minute remaining in the District 12-6A opener, the Kangaroos were not perfect at the charity stripe, but they made enough to escape Copperas Cove with a victory.

Killeen (6-3, 1-0) closed the game with four unanswered points as Mike House connected on a pair of free throws before teammate Willie McGee added another and Cortez Ivie capped off the scoring by making one of two attempts with 5.6 seconds remaining.
