In a tie game against Chichester with 17 seconds remaining, Penn Wood’s Clyde Jones called timeout. The Patriots’ head coach had just watched his team give up a 10-point lead in the final three minutes of the fourth quarter, but had an opportunity to draw up a final play to beat the Eagles.
Instead, he got a travel under the bucket with 3.2 seconds left on the clock. And then things got much worse.
Chichester’s Jamai Womack caught the ensuing inbounds pass on the right sideline, spun away from two defenders and found sophomore Da’Quan Granberry just outside the 3-point arc. Granberry took one dribble and put it up from 17 feet, just beating the final buzzer.
Down it went, giving the Eagles a 69-67 win.
