Powerade hauls down the rebound and Coach Bo Perasol asks for time.
[Time left - .6 of a second]
With .6 secs Doug Kramer is able to get a shot
off Jervy Cruz but it is just too hurried.
- Ergo - Overtime -
In the extension period, Rain or Shine manages only 2 points courtesy of Gabe Norwood. Powerade, on the other hand totals seven - 4 from David, 2 from Kramer, and 1 from JV Casio. Final tally is [Powerade-104 Rain or Shine-99].
A few more game images here :
- Foul Bait -
When Paul Lee's this close to the basket,
you simply have to foul him and make sure he doesn't convert.
It's either that or he gets another two points.
[No two ways about it]
Sean Anthony is called for a blocking foul
off Gabe Norwood in the 4-frame sequence below.
- Photo Finish -
Jeffrei Chan takes it to the hole.
- And The Winner Is . . . -
In the end the Powerade Tigers get the real Photo Finish - a Win.
The next 5 images show Gary David on the fastbreak,
faking Gabe Norwood out of position to get a clean shot - point blank.
- Signed, Sealed, Delivered -
