The Bluejays came to life in the second half to overcome the Vikings with 12 seconds left in the game.

CMCS trailed at half, 31-18, but outscored Minneota 48-31 in the second half by forcing numerous turnovers.

Zach Zwart finished the first half without a point, though not for lack of trying. But in the second half, his sights readjusted, he hit four 3-pointers.

The last of those gave the Jays their first lead of the game 64-62 with 12 ticks left. Minneota missed at the other end and Austin Bulthuis swished a pair of free throws for the final margin.

Bulthuis got 16 of team-high 18 points in the second half.

Zwart finished with 14 second-half points. Grant Hoekstra and Nick Daugherty each supplied a dozen points and Lucas Van Eps 7 assists.

CMCS (6-4 Camden, 7-7) pulled its record up to .500 with the rare win over Minneota (6-3, 12-4) in Camden contests.
