One spin and Indians win
BOURBONNAIS - One spinning basketball was what separated the Minooka Indians' girls basketball team from either winning or losing its regional semifinal game against Normal West Wednesday.
Fortunately for the Indians, that spinning ball didn't fall in the cylinder for Normal West, as a missed layup with 1.2 seconds left in overtime gave Minooka a 50-49 overtime victory over the Wildcats. The Indians will now play for their third straight regional title Thursday night.
"Obviously I'm a little prejudice, but it would have been a shame if we had lost that basketball game," Minooka coach Ray Liberatore said. "We basically came out here and led the entire night. As a four seed playing a one seed, our girls just went out there and played tonight. There was no fear."
