Look Back: 1995 BKB vs SCH
Penn Charter's boys basketball team will host SCH Academy tonight (Jan. 19) and here's making a strong guess we won't see anything close to this: A game that lasts 48 minutes and produces just 34 points.
On Jan. 20, 1995, PC visited what was then Chestnut Hill Academy and won by a score of 18-16, in four overtimes.
Just TWO points were scored in the extra sessions: Senior Scott Zalben broke the drought by sinking a field goal with four seconds remaining.
That was the first season in which OT sessions lasted four minutes. The previous time was three minutes. The game was relatively normal through one quarter as CHA claimed a 10-5 lead. Halftime arrived with the score at 12-12. So, over 16 more minutes in regulation, plus 16 in the OTs, only 10 points were scored.
Junior Larry Storm (also the football quarterback) managed eight for the game. Senior Shawn Peterson (three points) and junior Quincy Henderson (two) completed the Quakers' scoring avalanche (smile).
