WINONA — Hebron Christian’s Clay Faulkner had two options. He could take the ball to the rim himself in transition, or he could lob a pass to his teammate, Landon Hill. Faulkner chose the latter, and the Hebron fans thanked him.
Hill finished the opportunity above the rim with a two-hand slam dunk. Hebron’s Head Coach Bruce Franks stomped his right foot on the ground in approval after the play.
"We needed a motivator in the fourth quarter," Faulkner said. "I gave it a chance to see how well it went. It went down really well."
