AUSTIN — The Evadale Rebels were stunned when Eula’s Jacob Archa drained an off-balance 3-pointer as time expired giving the Pirates a 54-51 come-from-behind win in the Class A-Division I state semifinals at the Frank Erwin Center on Thursday morning.

With the game tied at 51, Eula possessed the ball with 2.7 seconds at the baseline opposite of their own basket. Guard George Reyes received the throw-in near half-court and passed to Archa who not only stunned the Rebels and their fans, but the 4,631 in attendance.
