Unlike the pros, high schools don't have replacement backboards sitting in storage, because it's rare that one gets broken. The coaches, referees agreed and, later, the OSAA concurred--game over. Sheri- dan wins 59-28. In today's world of technol- ogy, it's amazing that not a single video was captured of the shattering dunk, but the Sheri- dan senior did pose for photos in front of the broken board.

Hale-Edmerson also had 12 assists and seven rebounds. Paholio and Joey Hertel led Above: Brandon Paholio tosses a no-look pass in the Spartans' 64-53 win at Amity last Wednesday.
