HOLLY POND: Griffin Morris 25, Jake Harris 10, Kyler Chaney 16, Zach Shaw 8, McKinley Garrett 8, Garrett Rowell 4, Devyn Tankersley 4.
WEST POINT: Kolby Sullins 15, Kolton Sapp 13, Rylan Jones 14, Austin Dubberly 12, Noah Gammon 7, Tyler Thompson, Skylar Bowers 4, Hunter Persall 2, Dalton White 2.
FLASH NOTES: Holly Pond never panicked when the Broncos began the fourth period trailing 59-50 as West Point's Noah Gammon dropped in a pair from the foul line.
What would transpire was a fourth quarter with five lead changes in a row in a span of a minute and seven seconds, plus the Broncos trying to protect the lead and the Warriors having their trouble down the stretch making foul shots.
Rylan Jones ripped a three from the top of the key at 3:35 to send West Point back in front for the final time on the night, 66-64.
Fifteen seconds later, it was the Broncos' Griffin Morris, who matched Jones in draining a three from the top, using his left hand to lead the way. That propelled Holly Pond ahead 67-66.
McKinley Garrett scored from close distance with 2:01 to play and the Broncos had gone up by a 72-66 margin.
The Warriors would answer.
Kolby Sullins landed from trey land with 25 seconds to go to reduce the deficit to 74-73 as West Point called for a time out.
Free throws would factor in the rest of the way. Jake Harris was one of two with 0:17 left as Holly Pond led 75-73.
Sullins made just one of two with 0:04 left and the margin was down to 75-74.
Harris could not extend the lead for the Broncos as he missed both with three seconds showing.
But West Point could not gather the rebound cleanly as the ball bounced out of play, giving it back to the Broncos with four-tents of a second to go.
Shaw got the first to go, then intentionally missed the second as time expired with the Broncos moving their winning streak to four in a row, getting their sixth win in eight games and improving to 2-1 vs. county opponents.
Mitch Morris' Broncos have been solid in scoring in their last two games in the fourth quarter, producing 22 last Friday to run past Cold Springs 83-53 and the 26 Monday evening against West Point.
Randy Jones' Warriors were seven of 11 from the line in the fourth with the Broncos shooting three of seven. The Broncos were guided by 10 field goals in the final 8:00, three shots coming from three-point range.
West Point finished the third with the advantage, but seeing it go from 50-40 at the 2:49 mark to 57-50 when time ran out.
The Warriors lost for the first time at Jim Boyd Gym in three game so far on the young season.
