Remember how Ferris High School was untouchable in their last two seasons with DeAngelo Casto?
Well, the Saxons' 59 game winning streak, spanning well over two years, was broken last night.
Who did it? Shadle Park and Casto's future WSU teammate, Anthony Brown. Hat tip to Sportslink's Mike Vlahovich:
Midway through the third quarter and trailing 39-26, Shadle Park basketball players had an epiphany. They the more experienced team.
Heretofore outhustled and outscored by youthful Ferris, and in danger of losing their own unbeaten record – at home yet – the Highlanders found resolve and another second-half outburst by Anthony Brown for a 66-59 victory Friday in Greater Spokane League boys basketball.
Brown ignited a 35-10 rally with eight of the 13 points in a three-minute span that tied the score. Coupled with input from Luke Jordan during the spurt, the Highlanders (4-0) pulled in front 61-49 and brought to an end the Saxons’ two-plus-year winning streak at 59 games.
Kind of cool. A streak caused by one Cougar gets put to rest by another. Anthony Brown is a guard in our Cougar class of 2009, and should be a fun one to watch. So much for those problems recruiting Spokane, eh Tony?
