Two weeks ago, Laquintis Robertson threw up a last-second shot against the New Hope Trojans, in overtime. Everyone on West Point’s side thought for sure Robertson drew a foul on the missed shot, which would have allowed the senior a chance to tie the game with free throws.
He didn’t get the foul call, and the Green Wave fell by two.
On Tuesday night, West Point found themselves in the exact situation. Tied 50-50 with New Hope, in overtime, Robertson went to the air for a last-second would be winning shot, and the New Hope defenders were all over him.

Central Holmes blocked the Hebron Christian Lady Eagles’ outside game very well on Tuesday night, but they could not control Tori Nichols, who took passes from her teammates and put them into the goal at will to lead her team to a 57-43 win over the Lady Trojans.
Nichols would eventually shoot for 45 points against the Central Holmes defense, that was completely ineffective under the goal.
“They (Central Holmes) guarded the perimeter out wide, and we got some good passes to Tori, and she did a good job of finishing,” said Hebron head coach Greg Watkins.
