There are sometimes moments in games that transcend basketball, and this was one of those.
Beau Howell, a 5’6″ freshman at Trinity Classical with autism, had appeared in 9 games so far on the season, but was yet to score a single point.
With 59 seconds remaining in the game, and Trinity Classical leading by 23, Howell checked in.
His teammates immediately got the ball to Beau.He put up the shot but it bounced off the rim and didn’t go in.
Neither did his second.Desert Chapel secured the rebound and called a timeout.As the teams came back on the floor, and Desert Chapel in possession, what happened next was remarkable.
