A Great Game, But…

Well, Team III exceeded my expectations and took University III to overtime before eventually losing by five. We were actually leading by two with 9 seconds left, but thanks in part to my decision to pressure full court we ended up fouling with four seconds left in the game. U-High hit both their freethrows and we failed to get a good shot in the final four seconds of regulation. I think there’s a good chance that the outcome would have been the same had we simply fallen back into half court defense for the last ten seconds, but it’s hard to say for sure. On the one hand I’m really pleased with the job my team did, but on the other hand I’m pretty disappointed that we didn’t quite pull out the victory when it was ours for the taking.

Team I won their game fairly easily and plays tomorrow night at 6:10 PM.
