On this Play of the Week, it’s boys basketball with Jakhi Gray stepping up in crunch time. Presented by Trunnell Insurance.

It’s a Friday night and it’s boys basketball. The Warriors of Waubonsie Valley head up Eola Road to take on the Metea Valley Mustangs in MV’s home opener.

With Metea down three with less than 30 seconds left, Jakhi Gray steps up and nails a huge three to tie the game up, which would end up forcing overtime. A cold-blooded shot when his team needed it most. What a moment for the senior.

With time winding down, Corbett gets the rebound and gives it to Quentin Schaffer who dribbles the length of the court for the easy two. That seals a thrilling home opener for Metea Valley boys basketball, winning 60-54 over the Warriors.
