Easton Vanover sunk all three free throws with less than a second remaining Tuesday night, as Slidell escaped with a 44-42 win over Saltillo in the Class A Region III quarterfinal at Bells High School.

Vanover was fouled in the act of shooting with Slidell trailing by one, 42-41. He finished with 11 points.

Slayton Pruett led the Greyhounds in scoring with 18. It is Slidell’s first trip to the regional tournament since 1997.

The Greyhounds will play Eula at 5 p.m. Friday at Mansfield High School in the Class A Region III semifinal.
