"Scott dove on the ball," S.F.A. Senior Gerald Fonzie said. "And everyone was just all smiles."
It was a perfect ending to an emotional rollercoaster
S.F.A.'s victory Saturday over Oklahoma has everyone talking Lumberjack hoops.
"I think it brought a good deal of publicity across the country," S.F.A. Head Coach Danny Kaspar says. "Both in the sports sections and the newspapers and also on tv."
When the Jacks left on Friday, they took with them the thought that something special could happen.
"When we were going up there we knew we had a good chance at winning," Junior Josh Alexander says. "And we knew we had to play our tails of to do it. But we never counted ourselves out and we knew we could do it."
"I think Oklahoma after their big victory over tulsa had a little bit of a let down," Kaspar says. "By the middle of the first half they knew they were in a dog fight. By the time the woke up, our guys had the confidence they needed to go on."
It didnt hurt that down the strecth the Jacks stepped up big knocking down free throw after free throw to ice the victory.
"It means alot," Alexander says. "It just shows about our team, our players and our character, We are not scared and not afraid to take the big shots at the end. "
The Jacks will not play again until next Saturday when they hit the road to face San Diego.
