Choose the HS GameTime Play of the Week!
You asked for them, we'll deliver. HS GameTime Plays of the Week return for the high school basketball season!
Here's how it works, we select the top three plays from the previous week locally, then put it into your hands to tell us which play deserves to be named the Play of the Week.
We'll tally up the votes and announce the winner Wednesday night on KREM 2 News at 6 p.m. We'll also feature bring it back for an encore appearance on HS GameTime the show on Friday night at 11 p.m.
At the end of the basketball season, we take all the Play of the Week winners and put them head-to-head to decide which one earns Play of the Year. East Valley's Adam Talley took home the football season Play of the Year, which produced a check for $222 from local Toyota Dealers awarded to the school.
Here are the nominees this week.
We start with the huge rivalry between Gonzaga Prep and Ferris. The Saxons' Chase Haack knew his team had already won, but in the closing seconds, went skyward and threw down a two-handed jam as the final buzzer sounded. Haack put an exclamation point on Ferris' 49-38 win over the Pups.
The second nominee was a buzzer-beater in the East Valley/West Valley girls game. The Eagles led by a point with three seconds to play. The Knights inbounded the ball under the hoop where Erin Wallman converted the game-winning lay-up as time expired. East Valley defended its home court with the 34-33 win over its rivals.
Finally, we go back to the guys. University's Brett Bailey went airborne not once, but twice for jams against Mead. Bailey's first dunk was a two-handed baseline version, followed by a breakaway one-handed stuff late in the game to seal it. The Titans were victorious, 56-46.
There they are! Happy for voting!
