After his foul shot, Ironton turned the ball over with 0.1 seconds left and the Titans ran out the clock.

The Titans (25-3) play the Versailles-Leavittsburg LaBrae winner Saturday at 10:30 a.m. with a chance for their first title since 2008 and third overall.

Metzger, an Associated Press first team All-Ohio selection, had 25 points. But Ottawa-Glandorf needed a layup from Matt Kaufman with 0.9 seconds left in regulation to send the game to overtime at 55-55.

Trey Fletcher had 27 points and 13 rebounds for Ironton.
