Last-Second Three Completes OVBA Comeback

January 9th, 2020

Ryan Yazzi hit a last-second three-pointer to complete a furious rally as OVBA came back from down 10 to beat Lost Treasures, 69-68. The Treasures had built the lead behind six threes from Ashraf Alfatesh. But the Squad chipped away at the lead, finally cutting it to two with 10 seconds left. OVBA worked the ball around and found Yazzi in the deep corner for the game winner.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE - PLEASE READ: We have scrubbed clean all of our old team roster files, several of which had multiple entries with different spellings of the name of one player (e.g. Donte Williams, Dante Williams, Donte William). Most of this is caused by really, REALLY atrocious handwriting on the part of the players who sign in. We are in the process of inputting the new rosters but you guys have to help. If you can't write worth a crap, give the pen to someone who can. I'm considering bringing a tablet so that you can type your names in, but some of you will probably suck at that, too. Please help us in this endeavor. Thank you.
