(POMONA, Calif) Imagine this: Twenty nine seconds left in the game, Warriors are down by one point (66-67) coming out of a timeout. Westmont inbounds the ball and begins to run down the clock.
20 seconds….18 seconds…15 seconds….
With 12 seconds left, Sean Harman feeds Daniel Carlin on the right block. Carlin spins into the middle, up fakes and takes a three foot shot. The gym goes silent and everyone holds their breath as the ball rolls….and rolls….and rolls around the rim.
With Westmont up 68-67 and five seconds to go, Pomona-Pitzer inbounds and throws up a long, last second shot.
Warriors rush the court.
It was an exciting ending to a bit of a rocky game as the Warriors defeated the Sagehens 68-67 this evening in Pomona, Calif.
“Tonight’s game was a tale of two halves. In the first half it was evident that we were way off and things weren’t clicking. But I was really, really impressed with the way that our guys played the second half,” opened head coach John Moore.
