Though not one of their best performances of the year, the Blazers pulled it together in the 4th quarter to stage one of the most thrilling comebacks ever witnessed at Nelson H. Kobren Memorial Gymnasium. Down 13 with 3 minutes left, Coach Damon Pigrom called timeout and expressed frustration with Blair’s 4th quarter performance. The timeout culminated in a broken clipboard, and Blair left the huddle with a mountain to climb back up to win the game. Slow and steady, the Blazers put together quality offensive possessions and got stop. Down 1 with a 10 seconds left, Blair forced a turnover and Liam Olagbaju scored the game-winner with 6 seconds left. The Blazers face Blake High School next on Tuesday, Feb. 12th.
