Youth Basketball Team Celebrates A Little Bit Too Early…
01 June 2016 Humanity
If you still think that the NBA is the best place to watch edge-of-your-seat basketball action, we’re sorry to tell you that you’re wrong. Everyone knows that Japanese youth basketball leagues are home to the fiercest competition on the planet. While this might be a bit of an exaggeration, the Momochi Shooting Stars recently played their hearts out in a game that they won’t be forgetting anytime soon.
Their opponents staged an impressive comeback that put the two teams neck and neck for the final 30 seconds of the game. With two seconds left and two penalty shots awarded to the other team, all hope seemed lost for the Shooting Stars. But what happened next taught them, and their opponents, that the game isn’t over until the final second ticks off the clock.
