What might have gone down
in history as Southern's most
[ exhilarating intramural's bas-
I ketball game, took place last
I Wednesday between Mystic
J Splash and the Redeem Team.
It was an ordinary intra-
mural evening and students
began to gather around court
pne in Illes P.E. Center to get
t glimpse of Men's A league
basketball at its best. The fa-
Sored Redeem Team looked
Bntimidating with their athleti-
cism during warm-ups as they
■ebuted a complete team of
Bbuthern ball veterans. Mys-
Kc Splash, a brand new team
Bebuting first time intramural
Bayers, looked confident re-
Ejrdless of the their opponents
jSpe and numbers,
^wrom a students bleacher
Igrspective it looked like Go-
Bh versus little David. The

Redeem team was completely
stacked with few players un-
der six-foot-two whereas the
Mystic Splash team resembled
a bunch of young harp play-
ers who occasionally played a
little basketball.

Right from the tip off the
two teams engaged in a battle
that kept the attention span of
students but although the en-
tertainment was abundant, it
was the end of the game that
made it eligible for the record

Down by eight points with
five minutes left on the clock
left team Mystic Splash fight-
ing to turn the tide for victory.
Mysteriously, turn over after
turn over from the Redeem
Team gave Mystic Splash an
opportunity to tie the score
at 42 points apiece, with two-
point-three seconds left on the
clock. Everyone in the gym
stopped and stared as Mystic
Splash in bounded the ball.

Teams and fans on the other
courts couldn't help but glance
to see what would happen.

Illes P.E. Center stood si-
lent as Mystic Splash shoot-
ing guard, Willis Moore, came
off a pick, elevated from the
three-point line, and released
a shot that could possibly end
the game. The ball moved in
slow motion through the air,
three defenders surrounded
Willis still glued to the gym
floor as their worse nightmare
came to reality.

The ball rattled in the rim,
the buzzer sounded and ev-
eryone in the gym caught their
breath and cheered hysterical-
ly for the amazing game win-
Mystic Splash small for-
ward, Davis Wallace said "It
was a hard fought game, with a
well earned and much needed
victory for our team."

The game ended Mystic
Splash 44, Redeem Team 42.

Performing for the Chicago
