A crowd-rousing, fade-away, three-point shot by Chief Sealth International captain, senior, 6-0 guard, LJ Burns, merrily, tied the score, 64-64, with 2.8 seconds on the gameclock in the fourth quarter, but that nice play was made silent when the visiting Ballard Beavers went on to a 78-74, win, in overtime, Friday.
The Seahawks dropped to 0-5 in the Metro league, and, 2-5, overall, having a tough luck season thus far, having lost another OT game earlier this season, to Blanchet, and, also, close losses, to Cleveland and Blanchet, by three, and, six, points, respectively.
"I had to double clutch it, but I got a clean look at the basket, and, once it left my hands, I knew it was going in," said Burns, who scored 16 points to lead balanced scoring on his team against the Beavers.
Such a good quote! Wouldn't it be nice to dwell on that kind of coolness, those Burns' words of excitement there?
