Terrell Jones knew why he didn’t start Friday’s District One Class AAAA first-round game.
The Lower Merion forward may not have understood but accepted why he played sparingly in the third quarter. And he couldn’t recall how many shots he’d taken in his unusually disjointed time on the court.
But by the time the ball found its way unsteadily into his hands on an inbounds with 6.7 seconds left in overtime, none of that mattered.
Jones nailed a 28-footer from the top of the key with 2.2 seconds to play, leading No. 11 Lower Merion to a 68-66 win over No. 22 Penn Wood.
