Last night was one that Shane King will never forget. The team Manager for the Colony got to suit up in this one as they played host to the District Champions in 10-5A, the Lovejoy Leopards.
It didn't take long for his number to be called, right off the opening tip..
Shane trails the play and gets an open look - the shot is off the mark but like any good player he follows it up to get the Cougars off to a good start and we're pretty sure that's the best thing you'll see all day, what a moment for him and the home fans!
This one didn't disappoint as The Colony was hot from behind the arc early, Jayden Davis is off the mark but Xavier McKinney is there for the rebound and the assist to Grayson Ryan who hits the corner 3.
Lovejoy would get back into it with defense leading to offense, Karson Templin with the steal gets the Leopards out in transition, he works the give and go for the layup and the 3 the old fashioned way, nicely done!
Then off the rebound their out in transition once again, this time it's Marco Gaccione with the layup...
But the Colony got just enough, including a game high 13 points from Jayden Davis to pull the upset in overtime, 45-44.
