Darryl Franklin made a foul-line jump shot with three seconds left in the game to give Chantilly a 60-58 victory over 20th-ranked Herndon in a Great Falls District boys basketball game last night at Chantilly.

Chantilly (9-3 overall, 3-1 in the district) was given the opportunity to win the game when Herndon's James Daniels inadvertently stepped on the midcourt line with 12 seconds left and was called for a backcourt violation.

"It was a dynamite basketball game. Luckily, we got the ball at the end," Chantilly Coach Mark Martino said. "We wanted {Franklin} to penetrate and if he was covered up hard to dish it off. If he was covered one-on-one, then he was to shoot it."

Herndon (9-3, 2-2) found itself down by eight points at the start of the fourth quarter. However, the Hornets put on an effective press, forced three turnovers and, in a 45-second span, turned a 48-40 deficit into a 48-46 game. A 10-foot shot by Andrew Frieden (12 points) tied it with 4:10 left after an errant inbounds pass by the Chargers.

Two baskets by the Chargers' Shane Clancy, a 15-footer and a layup, put Chantilly up by 54-50 with three minutes left. However, a 10-footer by Daniels with 1:19 left tied the game at 56.

Clancy put Chantilly back up at 1:10, but Luteke Kalombo (20 points) made two foul shots with 55 seconds remaining to tie the score again. Herndon gained possession with 34 seconds left after Clancy missed an 18-foot shot from the corner. The Hornets then tried to play for the final shot, which they didn't get.

The game was close throughout. The biggest lead was Chantilly's eight-point advantage in the fourth quarter. However, the tempo did not start to pick up until the final minutes of the first half.

After Chantilly's Tim Fudd (12 points) made one of two foul shots with 2:32 left in the second quarter to narrow the Herndon lead to 21-20, the Hornets' Randy Dodson made a three-point shot. On the ensuing posession, Clancy scored on a layup to make it 24-22.

The Chargers went up at halftime on three Herndon mistakes in a space of four seconds. With 23 seconds left in the half, Franklin stole the ball and drove straight to the hoop. On the way, he was fouled by Dodson, and Kalombo was called for goaltending. Franklin's foul shot made it 27-26. H (9-3) -- Bowles 7, Daniles 2, Dodson 5, Bready 4, Freiden 12, Cook 8, Kalombo 20. Totals 23 10 8. C (9-3) -- Clancy 14, Franklin 19, Baker 2, D. Carroll 2, Gannon 3, Taylor 6, Fudd 12, Baughan 2. Totals 32 14 60.

Halftime: Chantilly, 27-26.

Three-point goals: Herndon 2 (Bowles, Dodson); Chantilly 2 (Franklin, Gannon).
