Nate Bogle let loose of the ball from the corner Wednesday night as the final second ticked off.

In and out, and a wave of Gilbert Highland students rolled across the court to celebrate the Hawks’ 49-47 victory over Mesa Mountain View before an overflow crowd at Highland.

“I was under the hoop, and I thought it was in,” said Highland bruising guard Noah Peterson. “My heart stopped, and I was, like, ‘Ahh!,’ “

Peterson can breathe easy as the No. 1 Hawks advanced to Saturday’s 6A boys basketball state championship game against No. 2 Phoenix Brophy Prep, which beat Anthem Boulder Creek on a buzzer beater Wednesday night. the game is scheduled for 12:30 p.m., at Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Phoenix.
