The second day of the Irvine Valley Classic is done on Friday after a long and wild final game.

Long Beach City led Imperial Valley in a semifinal contest, 69-57, with 1:17 to go in regulation.

But Imperial Valley battled back, scoring 18 points in the final 1:17 and tying the game, 75-75, on a three-pointer by Jumah Sutton at the buzzer.

In the first overtime, Imperial Valley was up, 86-83, when Long Beach City's Ahston Edwards was fouled shooting a three-pointer at the buzzer.

With no time on the clock, Edwards stepped up and calmly sank all three free throws to tie it at 86-86.

Imperial Valley had a little too much in the second overtime, though. The Arabs out-scored the Vikings, 12-8, to earn the win and reach Saturday's championship game.

The Arabs had seven players score in double figures and four players grab nine rebounds a piece. LaSalle Wright led the way with 19 points. Long Beach City was paced by Edwards, who finished with 29 points, and Tyler Tuilau, who had 26 points.Zach Mills and Michael Bolden
