On Friday night, the Lebanon Tigers traveled to Monrovia to take on the Bulldogs as we near the end of the season.  This was the first-ever meeting between these schools, and it did not disappoint. The game was tightly contested the entire way, and each team had their chance to pull away.  However, in the fourth quarter, Monrovia’s Josh Smith went off for 15 points to keep the Bulldogs in the game and eventually send it to overtime after Lebanon missed a three at the buzzer.  

In the second overtime, both teams went cold from the field and only scored four points each during the four minutes.  This time, Monrovia had a chance to win it at the buzzer, but Smith’s fadeaway jumper was partially blocked by Lebanon’s Kobe Ottinger to send the game into double overtime.  In the second overtime, both teams heated up from deep as there were 5 made threes in the second overtime. However, Lebanon hit their free throws late and Monrovia did not as Lebanon came away with a hard-fought 65-61 victory on the road.

Now, let’s take a look at five takeaways from Friday
