Before I get to today's writeup, allow me to share some details of Wooster's game last night against Greensboro and my imagined thoughts as if I was watching the game as it happened. It's story time.
halftime: Wooster leads 53-38. Looking good.
15 minutes left in second half: Wooster leads 64-48. Cool.
10 minutes: Wooster leads 74-61. Decent.
4:45 left: Wooster sinks a 3pt to lead 82-70. Nice.
1:46: Wooster hits two freethrows to lead 89-81. Good.
0:34: Another Wooster shot, 92-86. Fine, just play some defense and finish.
0:19: Greensboro hits a 3pt and there's a foul on the play. Free throw good, 92-90. Four point play? Really?
0:16: After intentional foul, Wooster misses both free throws. Annoyed, wondering why starting PF had ball.
0:11: Greensboro is fouled again while shooting but the shot doesn't fall this time. Both free throws are good, 92-92. At least we're not losing.
0:02: Wooster misses a 3ptr, we go to overtime. Glad to see that 91 per rating paying off!
1:55 OT: Wooster hits a shot to go up 100-99 after trailing most of OT. Ok, waking up after the shock of regulation, just hold on now.
1:46 OT: Greensboro hits one of two from the line, 100-100. Because of course we fouled the shooter again.
0:00 OT: After each team missed a shot and turned the ball over, Wooster misses a wide open shot from the right side. Glad to see that 60 LP rating paying off!
0:34 2OT: Wooster sinks a 3ptr to go up 107-106 after trailing most of 2OT. Maybe scoring in the first few minutes of an overtime session might net better results.
0:24 2OT: Greensboro hit a jumper and holy crap you're not going to believe this but he was fouled. The free throw is good, 107-109. Someone punch me in the face.
0:03 2OT: Wooster is fouled and shockingly both free throws go in thanks to a guard actually having the ball instead of my stupid PF. 109-109. Ok, remember what I said about scoring the first few minutes and maybe we can win this in triple OT.
0:00 2OT: Greensboro drills a halfcourt shot. Final score, 109-112. Well alrighty then.
The only thing about the ending that surprised me was that a Wooster player didn't get called for a foul on the halfcourt shot.
