Basketball: Amaechi sets record to earn Sharks the double
Sheffield Sharks 82 London Towers 79
Monday 09 March 1998
Amazingly, Amaechi nearly threw it all away 32 seconds from time when he rushed a shot with 15 seconds still on the shot clock and the Towers leading 79-78. The Sharks hustled possession back from Towers and James Hamilton fouled Wilbur Johnson to send Sheffield's American to the line.
Johnson had earlier missed his first four free throws, but this time scored with the first and when his second rebounded and was knocked out of court off a Towers' player, the inbound pass reached Myers, and his shot neatly swished through the net.
Sheffield: McKinney 3, Myers 10, Robinson 22, Cauthorn 4, Amaechi 40, Johnson 3. London: Berkovitch 7, Brown 9, Robinson 13, Lewis 23, Baldi 6, Austin 6, Deppisch 6, Hamilton 9.
