Though Marvin Freeman isn’t known as the quiet type, the situation can generally be left unsaid when Sun Valley games head to overtime.
Even Saturday afternoon against Garnet Valley, a game in which foul trouble limited Freeman to one second-half point, the extra session elicited an extra level from the senior wing.
“It’s something that, I’ve been born with that,” Freeman said. “My whole life, I love overtime. I don’t want to be in it, but when I get into it, there’s a certain drive in me that wants to thrive for the win. It makes me more hungry.”
His hunger led to five overtime points, including a decisive three-point play, to lead Sun Valley to a back-and-forth nonleague win over Garnet Valley, 64-57.
