Then, with seven seconds left and McDonald down 47-45 with the ball, Rasile’s last-second three-point attempt fell short despite contact at the buzzer.

Lucas holds on for the win 47-45.

Rasile finished with a game-high 21 points while Jake Portolese had 17.

Lucas advances to play Richmond Heights in the Regional Finals.
