The Six Mile Ducks are the Georgia Highlands College intramural basketball champions after a heated 60-54 victory that called for double overtime play.

Six Mile Duck team member, Tim Smith, makes his way through his competitors In the first half of the championship game, played in the gym on April 13, the Six Mile Ducks and Faculty/Staff battled it out keeping the score tight.

With two seconds left in the half and the Faculty/Staff down by one, Seth Ingram in-bounded the ball by throwing a long ball to Kyenon Hammond at the other end of the court. Hammond made the last shot, giving Faculty/Staff the lead at halftime.

At the end of the half the score was 24-23 Faculty/Staff.

During the second half, Faculty/Staff took control of the boards for the first few minutes, but the Six Mile Ducks caught up with 3-point shots from both Jarrett Grey and Mack Rolling. With 17 seconds left on the clock Faculty/Staff were down by three.

Jason McFry of the Faculty/Staff was fouled, which allowed him to shoot three free throws. McFry made the first shot bringing his team within two points, but then missed the last two. Hammond rebounded the final attempt and managed to tie the score at 52, sending the contest into overtime.

After a couple of missed free throws and some low scoring, the game was still knotted up when time expired, forcing a double overtime.
