It was fitting that overtime was needed to decide a victory in what might have been the final basketball game played on this aged Orillia court.

Barrie Colts defenceman Justin Murray was selected in the eighth round of the 2014 Ontario Hockey League Priority Selection, and is proving to be one of the steals of the draft. The 17-year-old rookie blue-liner has a goal and nine assists this season to go along with a plus-17 rating. The Colts host the Hamilton Bulldogs on Thursday night at the Barrie Molson Centre.
