The Magazine Rattlers went on a 21-1 run between the 2:45 mark of the third quarter and the 6:19 mark of the final quarter to pull ahead of Johnson County Westside, on the way to an overtime 81-75 win in Coal Hill Tuesday.
Randon Baumgartner threw in 32 points and pulled down 14 rebounds to lead the way and Matt Smith scored 15 of his 19 after the Rattlers were down by 19.
The game was the nightcap of a four game set that included a win by the Jr. Lady Rattlers and losses by the Jr. Rattlers and Sr. Lady Rattlers.

Max Greb hit a 3 on the next Rattler possession to make it 51-35. Baumgartner scored twice, Smith once, Chase Gibson had a basket and Greb, after scooping up a loose ball dropped in a 3 at the third quarter buzzer and it was 51-46, a 14-0 run 2:22.
Baumgartner started the fourth quarter scoring with a conventional three-point play and Gibson, who scored 15, scored again 29 seconds late to make it 52-51 — a Joseph Smith free throw had ended the Rebel drought with 7:11 to play.
A Baumgartner basket with 6:19 gave Magazine a 53-52 advantage, its first lead since it was 8-6 with 5:19 left in the opening quarter.
The game would then be tied at 54, 56, 58, 60, 62, 63, 65 and 67, the final time at the end of regulation.
That came after Jusiahus Muniz gave Westside a 67-65 lead with a reverse layup with :05 to play. After the basket Rattler coach Buck Chappell was jumping up and down signaling time out but it didn’t come until 2.6 seconds remained. After a discussion, the clock was set to 5.0 to play.
Smith went deep on the inbound, caught the ball and scored with under :02 seconds to go but again the clock continued although Micah Duncan requested a time out.
Again the clock was reset, to 1.5 seconds but Trevor Blake stole the inbound pass in the backcourt and launched an errant try to win it.
Baumgartner and Smith scored to start the extra four minutes and it was 71-67.
Joseph Smith cut it to 71-69 with two of his 25 with two minutes left but that was as close as the Rebels would get. Baumgartner hit a free throw and Smith scored again on a rebound of Baumgartner’s missed second free throw to push it to 74-69.
After a Muniz free throw — one of the four Rebels in double figures, he scored 10 — Levi Wright got that one back and after he missed a second try Baumgartner scored on a put back and the lead was 77-70.
Baumgarter hit two more free throws and Wright, on after Greb had fouled out in the final quarter, added a layup to make it 81-72 before Duncan hit a 3 at the buzzer to finish a 20 point night.

Kiara Vasquez cut it back to 45-37 with only her second basket of the night but following a scoreless 1:16 by Magazine, during which Vasquez fouled out, a Hannah Smith basket and a pair of Krigbaum free throws cut it to eight again at 49-41.
