Shelby County Champs

In what was as good a basketball game as you'll ever see, our 5th and 6th grade boys knocked off Germantown Elementary to complete a perfect 12-0 season in the Shelby County Basketball League.  Sporting only eight players, the team's success throughout the season was a testament to the incredible effort and hard work of every member of the team and to yet another masterful job of coaching by our Athletic Director, James Nokes.

Much like the semifinal game that preceded it, the championship game was a back and forth battle right from the outset.  Despite going down a few points late in the second half, our team bounced back and it was all tied up with a minute to play.  In those last 60 seconds the teams traded baskets and then, with 1.1 seconds on left on the clock, Simcha Osdoba drove the lane, drew a foul, and knocked down this free throw to seal the game:

Congratulations to Simcha, Ethan, Joel, Yisrael, Dovid, Ezra, Akiva, and Robby for a job really well done!
