Sportsmanship - it's still out there!

Great to see some sportsmanship from Santa Clara at the end of the St Mary's game.

Departing senior Tim Williams screwed up his knee at the start of the season and hadn't played since, from what I understand. With 7 seconds to go, Randy Bennett put all the seniors on the court, including Tim. Tim parked himself out on the wing for a 3-pointer, and Santa Clara gave him lots of room to take a shot.

St Mary's gave him the ball, and he was short on his first attempt. Santa Clara let St Mary's get the rebound and feed it back to Tim, who then made his shot on the buzzer. The St Mary's team and bench went berserk. Such great team spirit, and such a feel-good moment!!

And hats off to the Santa Clara coach and players for giving Tim the chance to get something back from a lost season.
