Making the most of big shots

Clint Holley, 36, known affectionately as Mr. Maypearl, often takes the stage at halftime of

area basketball games. Once the teams exit the court during intermission, he approaches the

center circle. What follows is a series of halfcourt shots, complete with running starts,

sometimes including a between the legs dribble, and then launches a two-handed, from-the-

chest, heave through the heavens.

Awaiting the misses are a half-dozen young boys dressed in red, the Maypearl Minions. They

rebound the basketball and hurl it back to the entertaining Holley, who will set up for another

Hail Mary.
