We had a complete nail-biter of a game from beginning to end. At one stage, we had a 10 point lead. They never had more then 4 points on us. No such thing as a comfortable gap tonight.
Every single player had at least one foul registered against them; no one fouled out. Excellent discipline.
Every single player contributed to the score - making plays, setting picks, catching passes, busting some sweet moves, hitting buckets, making free throws, and scoring three pointers!
They all played hard, with intensity and heart. They came back with seconds left to tie the game at 51 points and headed into a 3 minute overtime period with steely eyed adolescent determination.
Fouls called. Free throws hit. Score tied at 56. 0.3 seconds on the clock when the ref blows the play dead and calls a foul (holding) against the other team. No line up. 2 shots.
No breathing. Hearts hammering. And that was just the spectators.
I seriously considered whether or not I would throw up.
Up to the foul line. Bounce the ball 3 times. Once more with a little extra backspin. Two hands.
And the crowd exploded!!!!
