The Tornadoes (24-2) sweep the season series from the Swifts, while taking a firm hold on the District 3-1A lead improving to 10-0 in the league race. Nazareth drops to 18-12, 8-2.

Groom freshman Bryson Shuck checked in for the first time against Hedley with seven seconds to play, and the Tigers trailing 42-41. Shuck hit a 3-pointer as time expired that lifted Groom to a thrilling 44-42 win over the Owls. It was Shuck’s only points on the night.
