HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) — Emmanuel Adoyi had 26 points and a key three-point play late to lift Little Rock Parkview to a 69-65 double-overtime win over Jonesboro in the boys Arkansas Class 6A state championship game.

The title is the second straight for the Patriots (25-5) and the school's 12th overall.

Parkview led 64-63 in the second overtime when Adoyi forced a steal, drove the length of the court for a basket and was fouled. The senior made the free throw to put the Patriots up 67-63 with 55.4 seconds remaining, and the Patriots held on late.

Anton Beard had 21 points for Parkview, and Imara Ready added 11.

Kahron Ross led the Hurricane (23-8) with 25 points, and Jaylin McBride had 15 and Jacob Gibson 11.
