Team Purps claims basketball title

February 25th, 2009

John Estes fostered a hoops dream when he assembled his Super Games team.
It became a reality today when his Team Purps, led by four-time All-State guard Miah Ostrowski and Dustin "The Human Blur" Blount, clobbered Sex Appeal in the basketball championship game in Klum Gym.
Ostrowski, proving he's one of the top point guards on campus, opened the scoring by draining consecutive all-net 3s.
Blount, who is about 5-7, soared for a putback.
And Brett Leonard  banked a 3 from about 24 feet.
The play of the morning came in the prelims. Ostrowski leaped to save a ball from going out of bounds, then made a quarter-court, behind-the-back pass for an assist.

Here are Ostrowski and Blount:
