The Langley boys basketball team defeated cross-town rival McLean in overtime Tuesday night, marking the Saxons’ ninth win against the Highlanders in the last 10 meetings between the two schools. The road victory gave Langley (12-3, 5-2) sole possession of first place in the Liberty District after Marshall fell to Jefferson, 55-54, in double overtime Tuesday.
Junior guard Ross Gallaghan (nine points) nailed the game-winning three-pointer from the top of the key with five seconds remaining in overtime.
