Huge underdog on the road, Antelope Valley College did an outstanding job of implementing their coaches game plan to NEAR perfection and with 6 second left on the clock,  led San Bernardino by three points.  SBV drove down the court and jacked up a desperate three point shot and missed.  However, AVC’s defender fouled the shooter with less than 2 seconds left and he cold bloodedly dropped in all three free throws to put the game into overtime.


San Bernardino team did not play anywhere near their best game after their long layoff and AVC’s unexpected game plan but,  had enough left to take advantage of the AVC foul with two seconds left.
