Eastside Prep shoots down another Pinewood streak while deadlocking WBAL girls' hoop race

==BI Tuesday's girls' roundup==

The last time the Pinewood girls' basketball team ventured into Eastside Prep's gym was January of 2010. On the line that night was Pinewood's historic 149-game league win streak that began in 1995. The Panthers saw their league streak end that night before beginning another that lasted 15 games. Not too surprising, it came to an end at the hand of the same team in the same gym.

Fabulous game last night between the Eastside and Pinewood girls basketball teams. Both teams played extremely hard, and although playing catch-up for much of the game, Eastside showed a lot of grit and determination in coming back and eventually winning in overtime. The game exemplified the best in high school sports: spirited play by true athlete-scholars with supportive but very appropriate cheering sections. The only negative was the injury to Leanne Martin who hopefully will recover in time to help her team in the playoffs.

I went to the game to see this amazing matchup of two of the best girls teams (of any school size) in the region -- and it lived up to the promise. The 3-pointer Ahjalee swished to tie it as regulation time expired, with defenders draped all over her, may have been the most unlikely and unbelievable shot I've ever seen in a basketball game, at any level. As the shot went through, the (home) crowd in the stands exploded and the buzzer sounded -- a memorable sight. Agree with the above poster: the players and fans (and game) represented the best in high school athletics.
