Andre Brown hit two free throws with 8.7 seconds left Saturday, vaulting the Colorado Springs School Kodiaks to a 42-39 victory over Holyoke in the Class 2A state championship game.

"As a kid growing up, you dream about being in that position," said Brown, a junior who finished with eight points and made all four of his free throw attempts.

"I was nervous, but I knew I had to make those free throws and they felt good when I released them. It feels great to be a state champion. This is everything I ever imagined."

The Colorado Springs School (25-2) made history in its inaugural appearance in the state boys basketball tournament. Hoyoke (25-2) was trying to capture its second state boys basketball crown. The Dragons won the Class 2A crown in 1984.
