Boys fall to 3-2

Norwell Boys Basketball 42, Southern Wells, 49. The boys fall to 3-2 on the season.

How bad did things go for Norwell in the third quarter?

After a rebound basket by Chase Harris with 3:38 to play got Southern Wells to within 26-25, the Raiders turned the ball over on all five of their remaining possessions in the quarter. And they still managed to outscore the Knights, 2-0, through the remainder of the period to take a 27-26 lead.

With 1:13 to play in the period, Imel stole the ball for Norwell and went in for a layup. He was fouled hard to the basket by Ripperger, who was called for an intentional foul.

That’s two shots and the ball out of bounds.

But Imel missed both free throws, and the Knights were called for five-seconds on the ensuing throw-in.

No sooner did Southern Wells cross the timeline, however, when Reed stole the ball and went in for his third two-handed slam of the game.

But the ball popped off the back flange. And Reed was awarded a technical foul for hanging on the rim for his efforts.

Less is sometimes more.
