Good natured fun dominated the day as Evergreen edged Tyee, 72-71, in a staff/alumni fundraiser basketball game Friday.
Such was the case even after the show in the Evergreen gymnasium ended.
"We got the win," quipped Evergreen athletic director Chris Dubois while cleaning up along with Tyee athletic director John Yellam. "A dominating win."
"One point on a ghost technical, right," responded Yellam.
The "ghost" technical foul Yellam was referring to came with 1:16 to play in the game and turned a 69-68 Evergreen lead to 70-68 on 1-for-2 free throw shooting.
Evergreen added two more free throws in the waning seconds of the game, then Tyee closed the final score to 72-71 on a three-point shot with one second left.
To the winner went a silver trophy to keep for a year until the next meeting.
But this game was not so much about the game or the trophy as it was about raising funds for the athletic programs at both schools.More ›
