WOLCOTT, Ind. (WLFI) — Riley Ewen tore his ACL in early November and has been forced to watch his Tri-County team from the sideline all season.
On Friday night, though, the Cavaliers led Benton Central by 16 points with under a minute left.
Tri-County called a timeout so Ewen could check into the game.
Benton Central allowed Ewen an open 3-point shot shortly after — the Bison likely would have allowed him multiple tries — but but knocked down his first shot.
Tri County won the game 69-53.
