Team Hendricks vs. WR Starkey 7/14/09 9PM
What an amazing game! There was still a big crowd who stayed late for the 9 pm game, probably due to stars such as Ed Davis, Mason Plumlee, and Bo Ingram playing in the final game of the night. Both teams were outstanding, where WR Starkey led for most of regulation, until the fourth quarter where Team Hendricks fought back diligently. Even with “Big Smooth” Ed Davis hitting unusual outside jump shots, Team Hendricks brought the score to a 54-all tie with 3 minutes left. The teams were neck-and-neck while Steven Rush of Team Hendrcks hit a three-pointer with 30 seconds left to raise his team to a score of 65-62. However, when WR Starkey got the ball back, Bo Ingram was fouled in the act of shooting a three-pointer, went to the free throw line and made all three of his shots, tying the score again. 65-all saw the end of regulation, bringing the game into a two-minute overtime. Each team showed incredible hustle, diving after every loose ball and playing hard-core defense, but Chris Hill of Team Hendricks scored a lay-up after Ed Davis and Bo Ingram made a couple free throws to tie the game again, which sent both teams into sudden death (double overtime), where the first team to score 5 points wins the entire game. In sudden death, Ed Davis made a three-point play and CJ Leslie had an explosive dunk at the end to seal the deal. After an amazing game of basketball to end the night, WR Starkey barely wins with a 77-72 victory in sudden death.
