(Carroll) The Atlantic Boys Basketball team came from behind to defeat Kuemper 43-41 Tuesday night to hang on to at least a share of the lead in the Hawkeye Ten Conference boys basketball race.

The Trojans outscored Kuemper 14-4 in the third quarter to lead 34-26. However, Kuemper battled right back in the fourth quarter to tie the game 41-41. Senior Dalton Franken’s two free throws with 6-seconds remaining gave Atlantic a 43-41 lead.  The Knights three-point attempt with 3-seconds left fell short giving Atlantic a 43-41 win on the road.
