Unscripted finish ends well for Palmer

Basketball coaches have varying styles, but when it comes to last second shots, they tend to either call a timeout to set-up a play or they let the players handle things spontaneously. Even then the line-up on the court have likely practiced game-ending situations throughout the season. When Rice tied the score with 0:12 on the clock, Ryan Fortenberry, Palmer’s head coach, chose not to interrupt the flow of the game. His Bulldogs were playing well so he let his players settle the outcome. But why wouldn’t he call time and draw up a play? “A lot of coaches believe in calling a timeout in that situation,” he admitted. “I really didn’t want to give Rice a chance to set up their defense.” Read stories like this and more in your latest edition of The Ennis News.
