Down one with less than 10 seconds to play, head coach Luke Bycroft didn’t call a set play.

He knew his team and he knew the situation. He didn’t want them wasting time thinking; he just wanted them to play ball.

So when senior point guard Derek Bycroft looked left at junior Cal Leonard, who had 18 points and was on fire, and right at senior Blake Ashmore, who put up 17 points, including a strong open and finish to the game, neither was open.
