Thank goodness Hickey pulled a triple pump fake at the end of the game so we had a chance to tie it up.

Thought the same thing Florida225. What stings worse is that we couldn't hit the lake from the Causeway in the first half and we made it a game late but couldn't close due to bonehead plays; ie turnover on the perimeter and the dbl clutch at the end.
