York trailed by 10 with 1 minute, 28 seconds left, but rallied behind big 3-pointers from Jon Casimir and Chad Tipton. The Ants won the game on a last-second shot by Jerren Harris.

Tipton, a South Western High School graduate, led York with 22 points. Spring Grove High School graduate Bryce Harbold added 19 points for the winners. Akeem Washington (18), Harris (17) and Casimir (16) also hit double digits for York.

It was Westchester's first loss of the season.
