Coming in at #3 on the 2013-14 Apprentice School Top 10 Moments countdown is a dramatic win for the Lady Builders in early February that landed them in rare air.
On February 1, the Lady Builders traveled to Winston-Salem, N.C. to face the Spirits of Salem College. The hosts entered the game on a 16-game winning streak, while The Apprentice School had won four games in a row.
A back-and-forth affair saw a jumper from Salem’s LaSashia Connelly with 2.5 seconds left gave the hosts a 66-64 lead. Courtney Collins inbounded the ball to Shanae Hilliard who took a couple dribbles and let fly a half-court shot that banked in at the buzzer for a 67-66 Apprentice School win.
That night, the Lady Builders landed on ESPN Top 10 Plays at #2 on the 11pm Sports Center. It’s the first time The Apprentice School has been on ESPN.
