    After nearly 24 minutes of some of the worst offensive play he’d seen from his team all season, coach Kevin Schafer and his East Mills Wolverines found themselves down just 31-30 with 2.1 seconds left in the third quarter in its state tournament opener.

    But a three pointer by Dunkerton’s Nick Anderson from 30 feet out at the third quarter buzzer and a 12-2 run to open the final quarter flipped the momentum as the No. 4 ranked Raiders pulled away late for a 50-38 victory in the Class 1A state quarterfinals at Wells Fargo Arena Monday afternoon.
