Game 1

Home Up


    What a thriller! A double-overtime thriller to be more precise. What a way to start off the new session of Cage basketball, with a thrilling 32-31 come from behind - not once, but twice - victory. At the end of regulation the ACC team was down two points, and Tyler's teammate Darius knocked down a clutch two point basket to send it to overtime. Then, in the overtime period and trailing by three, Luke hit a three-pointer off the glass as time expired to send it into double overtime. At the Cage the double OT games are won by the team that scores first, and each team had a couple of looks at the basket. Thankfully a clutch free throw by Luke was all it took to seal the victory for the good guys. Tyler didn't have the greatest game offensively today, as he missed all of the shots that he took despite getting some good looks at the basket. He more than made up for it with hustle on the defensive end of the court, however, by making a couple of blocked shots through shear hustle, chasing players down on fast breaks.

    A special thank you to the parents of Tyler's teammate Ryan for helping out with my camera as I kept score today, especially since Tara was unable to attend due to Drew's basketball Clinic.
