Jones’ buzzer-beater lifts Quakers over Cadets

PLAINFIELD — It took just about every single second of 32 minutes to decide a winnerbetween Plainfield and Cascade last Saturday night.

Quaker senior Luke Jones hit a game-winning 3-pointer as time expired to lift Plainfield over Cascade 46-43.

It was Jones’ first game-winning shot in his career and he was close to speechless after making the clutch shot.

“You see it on TV all the time and big time players stepping up in big time moments,” he said. “And it went it.”

Cascade’s Eric Bobadilla stepped to the line trailing 43-41 with 7.8 seconds remaining.  He made the first, then Plainfield attempted to ice him with a timeout and the senior made the clutch second free throw.

“I think every year when you have seniors on the team, there’s some magical moment that every senior has, and that was his tonight,” Cascade coach Chris DuBois said. “He stepped up and hit those free throws, clutch free throws.”

On the inbounds, Plainfield senior Jake Jay received the ball and dribbled the length of the floor where he found Jones waiting on the right wing. Jones shot without hesitation and was mobbed shortly thereafter by his teammates and Quaker fan section.

“It really just went so fast,” Jones said. “I saw it go in. I looked at the scoreboard and the next thing I know, we’re in here in the locker room.”

With 11 lead changes on the evening, Cascade (4-11) was never out. The Class 2A Cadets gave everything the Class 4A Quakers could handle.

“We talked about this before the game, that a lot of 4A schools don’t respect the smaller schools,” DuBois said. “That was our biggest key to come out and battle. To do everything we can to make Plainfield respect us. We did that. I don’t think there’s a fan in here tonight that would that disagree with me on that.”
