"We wanted to switch on all the screens, but I knew he wanted to shoot the ball on the last shot and be the hero," Schifino said of his game ending heroics. "I knew I had to come up with a big play, and I made the big block on him. I was with him the whole way."
Schifino scored 18 points on 7-17 shooting from the field while seeing at least three good shots spin in and out of the hoop. He was 4-6 from the free throw line, and added two assists against only one turnover in 33 minutes of action.
"I didn't think about those missed shots," Schifino said afterward. "I was a little mad about one that I thought was goaltending, but I didn't let that bother me."
