For Poland, Ross Dedo had a game-high 29 points while Fulton had 14.
“Overtime we just had to dig deep,” says Chaney guard Josiah Gonzalez. “Our coach told us we have four more minutes for the rest of this game and we just came out and played as a time and got the W.”
Chaney improves to 18-8 overall and advances to play St. Vincent St. Mary at the Canton Civic Center on Thursday at 8 p.m. in the Division II Regional Semifinals.
