‘Landmark moment’ for Huntley girls basketball
CARPENTERSVILLE – Huntley junior forward Sam Andrews stepped to the free-throw line with an opportunity to lock up the Red Raiders’ trip to the Class 4A state semifinals.
With 11 seconds remaining and Huntley holding a three-point lead against Wheaton Warrenville South, Andrews, an 83.4 percent free-throw shooter, watched as her first attempt bounced off the rim. But with a confidence that was on display the entire game, Andrews calmly knocked down her second free throw attempt, giving the Red Raiders a two-possession lead and igniting the lively Huntley fans.
The Tigers had two opportunities to score in the final 11 seconds, but Huntley’s defense held strong. Wheaton Warrenville South’s desperation 3-pointer fell short as time ran out, setting off a Red Raiders celebration with their 47-43 win for the Dundee-Crown Supersectional title.
