For the second time in three days, fewer than four points kept the Forest Park Bruins from claiming their first victory of the boys basketball season.

“His only basket and proved to be the most important,” Forest Park coach Mak Dogbatse said of Delgaco. “In exciting fashion.”
Robinson entered the fourth quarter with a 28-27 lead following a 22-21 advantage at halftime and a 10-10 first-quarter tie. The Bruins took a late lead in the back-and-forth game, but the Rams responded with the buzzer-beating 3-pointer.
