Blue Devils Fall On The Road

Edgar's picture

The Blue Devils fought a valiant fight on the road Saturday night, Feb. 2, against Hobart, but in the end fell just a point short, losing 64-63.

The Blue Devils fought from behind for most of the game, but always stayed within striking range. At the 6:30 mark in the fourth quarter they put themselves in a position to take command, cutting Hobart’s lead to just one point at 57-56. After a strong defensive stop that consumed more than a minute of the clock, Cordell jumped into the lead with another bucket, 58-57.

The teams played back and forth for the rest of the game. As the clock was winding down, Drayton Maddox drove the lane for what seemed sure to be the go-ahead bucket, or at least the opportunity to tie it up or take the lead from the foul line, but the shot didn’t fall and no whistle blew. The Devils were unable to sink a half-court buzzer beater to take the win.
