Incredible finish to a whirl wind season

Going into the 2016 AAU season, our expectation as an organization was to start something special. We had moments when we didn't quite play to our potential as a team, and we also had moments where we exceeded expectations. In the final tournament of the season, after losing our first 2 games, the easiest thing to do was to quit, but the girls refused. Down 20 in the first half of last game of the AAU season, the girls battled back. Momentum swung in our favor when coach Kenny changed the defensive game plan to a box and 1. Coming back from a huge deficit, the last 5 minutes was a defensive struggle with both teams getting key stops. Down 2 with a few seconds left we made a  clutch game tying shot and was able to get a huge stop leading to a gaming winning jump shot. Moments like these are the epitome of something special. I can't wait till next season.
