Submitted by crecord2010 on
It was a game that may be talked about for years to come as the boy’s basketball coaches from Nordheim and Austwell-Tivoli stood silently for one minute 48 seconds to run out the clock.
Nordheim, with only six players, played their first district game against the Austwell-Tivoli Redfish on Jan. 31 at home. It was the first time that all members of the team were eligible due to grades.
