Sophomore guard Brenden Weis hit a 3-point shot at the buzzer to give the Janesville Parker High boys basketball team a 50-47 win over Columbus at the Showcase Classic at Waunkee on Saturday night.

Parker coach Matt Bredesen said the last-second play was not designed for Weis to shoot.

“It was set up for (Tremar) Curry,” Bredesen said. “But he was double-teamed, and he kicked it to Weis, who was wide open.”

Curry led the Vikings with 22 points. Weis finished with 13.

The Vikings (2-9) play at Beloit Memorial on Thursday.
