Sergio Chavez scored 20 points, while Demetrio Flores followed up a miss as time expired, giving the Mustangs the win over the Beavers in Kismet.
The wild finish included a tight final eight minutes, with the final 10 seconds wild enough to make anyone's heart skip a beat.
Chavez hit a layup with 9.8 seconds left, and completed the old-fashioned three-point play at the foul line to give the Mustangs (7-8) their first lead of the night, 51-49. Jackson Lewis (five points) then made two foul shots to tie the game at 51-all, setting up the final possession.
Flores (7 points) picked up a miss of his own interior shot and, in a crowd, followed up with the game-winning bucket.
Hunter Yager had 22 points, while Ronnie Weathers added 10 for Scott Community (8-8). The Beavers led 31-21 at halftime, a lead which the Mustangs whittled down to just two, 38-36, at the end of the third stanza.

The Tigers hit three late foul shots - two of them by Harrison VanMeter - to snap a 51-all tie and pull out a win, snapping the Spartans' 10-game win streak in the process.
Deerfield (14-3), who still can wrap up the No. 1 seed in the Kinsley Regional with one more win, tied the game late in the fourth quarter with a Manuel Mata 3-pointer. But Pawnee Heights, who had a 33-24 scoring edge in the second half, managed to get to the line to take the home win.
The Spartans used an 8-0 lead to close out the first quarter with a 15-9 lead, then opened up to as much as 10 points in the second eight minutes of the game before the Tigers roared back with the final four points of the half, pulling to within 27-21 at the break.
