Jaguars ride momentum, down Hawks
February 12, 2012Tri-Nine Conference
RALEIGH - It's not uncommon for a back-breaking 3-pointer to permanently swing the momentum of a basketball game.
What is uncommon is for that game-changing shot to take place from the opposite 3-point line and on the final play of the third quarter.
But Athens Drive's Justin Reynolds did just that on Tuesday night.
Reynolds had just collected a defensive rebound just inside Holly Springs' 3-point line, but instead of taking a few more dribbles -- there were about three seconds left on the clock -- he took one and flung his shot at the Athens net. The 70-footer never hit the rim,
swishing straight through the nylon and gave the Jaguars their first lead since the early stages of the first quarter.
The Jags never trailed again, defeating Holly Springs 42-36 in Tri-Nine boys basketball action.
