Free throw (Fuh-ree Tuh-row) A free shot from 15 feet.
I was once told that free throws are supposed to made free,. That is why missing a free throw is a cardinal sin in a basketball game. That is why we always ask ourselves, how will a team expect to win if they miss 23 free throws in one game. That was the waterloo that the STI College Olympians put themselves into as the San Sebastian College Recoletos de Cavite Baycats exploited this chink in the Olympians armor to get the all important 86-77 game three win to dethrone the champs and crown themselves as the 8th NAASCU Seniors Basketball champions.
The game was another classic as both teams would not blink an eye may it be in defense or in offense. The Baycats started where they left of, by nailing the first three-pointer in their first attempt. Confidence runs high in the game of Raymond Alacasabas as he hit a three pointer while Mark Basa was humming offensively once again. ON the other side of the court, Ramon Mabayo was all business as he drove to the lane with authority. The Olympians stepped up their defense as Darryl Mendoza and Mabayo swatted almost every shot that the Baycats had in the paint.
