Into the annals of history

This was the last gym in Vermont with the restraining lines, no center line, backboards affixed to the wall, etc. I called numerous games there. One ending I remember had the home team scoring a bucket with less than 10 seconds left to pull within one point. The long baseball pass (okay--just past midcourt) by the visotrs struck an overhead cable rather than find a wide open teammate and the home team had a throw-in under their basket. 1st attempt batted trhough the lane and out on the other side and now there were 6 seconds remaining. Throw-in to the lead scorer wide open beyond the arc, and he.....drives to the hoop, loses the ball, claims he was fouled, fouls his opponent, and with the visitors hitting one of two with a second left, that was the ballgame.

In the story, a school board member says the new gym will be "state of the art". I hope he means it will come with shock collars for the coaches.

And speaking of old gyms, due to the scheduling and availability situation in our area, our local kids rec league plays our girls HS games in an elementary school gym that has no three point lines, old wooden fan shaped backboards and enough space along the sides for one row of folding chairs on one side (player benches and scoretable, which is actually partly on the court) and about three rows on the other side (spectators). It's hard not to automatically start to signal a three when a long shot is taken.

Oh yeah, it's also got about three sets of lines on the floor for other sports, i.e.: volleyball. Very confusing.
