Sky Hookers lose, but win vs. Boone Basketball Club

By David Rogers. BOONE, N.C. — It was a thrilling, 3-point shot at the buzzer made by the Boone Basketball Club (BBC) to tie the game vs. the Sky Hookers, 74-74, at the end of regulation. BBC went on to win in overtime, 81-77, but then was discovered to have used “ringers” — players not on their official roster just for this game — so was disqualified from advancing to the Dec. 20 final of the Watauga Community Recreation Center’s Adult Basketball League tournament championship.

Regardless of the illegal rostered players, it was an exciting basketball game. Multiple lead changes, the jump ahead and then catch-up scoring from both teams propelled by long distance perfectos as well as acrobatic attacks at the basket from inside the paint. The Sky Hookers were successful on seven 3-pointers, the BBC had eight.

Caleb Bryson (20 points), Joe Keys (13), Seth Moore (16) and Cam Baker (14) were all in double figures scoring for the Sky Hookers.
