A tight, evenly balanced contest between two great teams with similar skills and coaching. With 1:20 left in the game St. Josephs #23 sunk two free throws to tie the game at 34 apiece. With 19 seconds left in the game, All Saints had possession and called a timeout to strategize their final play. The play did not materialize and St. Joseph’s got the ball with 1.5 seconds and called for a time out. A perfectly executed “close” shot almost won the game for St. Joseph but instead it went into a two-minute overtime.
