Exclamation Team shoots lights out - literally

Last night 6th grade "competitive" girls game. A few minutes into Q3, A1 takes a long three and swishes it. Immediately, the lights go out on our side of the gym! Parents try to find the school monitor, but can't. Besides, they are halogen lights and take some time to go on. On the other side of the curtain in this gym, a boys 8th grade team from my local kids rec league was just finishing a practice. I asked them to cut it short as a favor (only 7 or 8 minutes short) and we moved everything over to that side of the gym and finished the game.

Gotta tell ya' - it was really weird. Oh yeah, about 10 minutes after we restarted, the monitor came over and turned the lights back on. They took about another 15 minutes before they were fully bright.
