In the words of LL Cool J, "Don't' call it a comeback... we've been here for years..." was the tune sounded around the gym Wednesday night as the Mustangs knocked of Whitney Young, 72-53.
victory came with lots of drama including an asthma attack in
the third quarter and and the teams' key player not feeling
Markee Williams, after scoring the first five points of the second half, suffered an asthma attack and struggled breathing until the fourth quarter, when an inhaler was found for him.
“I was pretty scared,” Williams said. “I don’t usually have attacks during games, so I didn’t bring my inhaler. I was too dizzy to watch the game.”
Williams’ third-quarter heroics kicked off a 21-3 third-quarter run. This run sparked lots of disagreement between Dolphin players on the court as well as the bench.
On the other side, senior Ahmad Starks led Young with 15 points followed by freshman Tommy Hamilton Jr. who added 11.
After a slow start, the Rockets got refueled late in the 1st half behind the scorching hands of Diamond Burt, who celebrated senior night with a double-double, 25 points and 21 boards. East came out in the second half with jet-fueled packs getting out to a 14-0 run through 5 minutes of play. They only allowed 4 points in the third.
Junior transfer Juanita Robinson led all scorers with 23 points in this contest. This was a big motivating victory for the Lady Zee-Bee's going in to the playoffs.
