Game 5

    Today's basketball game between Drew's team and the opposing Hungry Howie's team was a tough defensive battle between two extremely closely matched squads. The game was close throughout, as players on each team struggled to get the ball through the net. Things were looking tough for the Nichols team, as they trailed by two late in the game. Drew managed to sink the game-tying basket for his only two points of the contest. When the buzzer sounded, the game was tied at 13 points apiece. A two-minute overtime ensued, but neither team was able to score (despite some shots that were extremely close to ending it). A second two-minute overtime followed, again with no baskets being scored. Finally, a third two-minute overtime took place, with this one being sudden death - the first team to score would win. It looked as though a fourth overtime might take place, but Drew's team failed to get back on defense with a half minute remaining, and the Hungry Howie's team was able to take advantage of this mistake to score the game winning basket. One player from each team fouled out, and it was unfortunately the best player for each. This left Drew with the primary ball handling roll, and although he did OK in this spot, it isn't the strongest part of the game. Still, they had chances to put the game away, but they just weren't able to come up with the final necessary basket.
