After an extremely exciting game to open up the WIAA tourney on Wednesday (think Kentucky vs LSU comeback status...well maybe not quite that intense). For high school basketball this was an amazing feat to be down by 12 points with only minutes to go and Darnell Williams hits the game winning shot. The Vikings defeated No. 2 Eisenhower 68-65.
Here is a video from THE NEWS TRIBUNE. After Williams shot Marquise Doss steals the ball to seal the deal.
Unfortunately last night was a different story. Curtis "believed", the fans "believed", I 'believed". Even Foss believed that it was very likely Curtis could win. The lead Foss held never was too comforting especially after watching the Vikings win the night before. When the Vikings cut the double-digit-deficit to three points with a shot from Darnell Williams with 45 seconds remaining. Everyone present thought we were in for another comeback! In the end Curtis lost 66-59.
Here is a quick preview. There are way too many good pictures to post but more will follow. The individual player DVD are coming together nicely and will be available at the end of the season banquet.
