Ludlowe Basketball: Gutierrez’s Heroics Lift Ludlowe Past Staples

Patrick Gutierrez hit the game winning jumper as time expired to give Ludlowe a 32-30 victory over Staples on Thursday night.

Ludlowe led almost the entire game until Staples took a 27-26 lead with just under 3 minutes to play in the fourth quarter.

Then with Staples leading 30-28 Gutierrez tied the game with a mid-range jumper.

Gutierrez scored more than half of Ludlowe’s total points, finishing with 18.

Ludlowe, which prides itself on defense, is now 3-1 when scoring under 40 points.

Ludlowe improved to 5-4, while Staples drops to 3-5. The Falcons will play next on Tuesday when they travel to Westhill to battle the Vikings at 7pm.
