Semi-Finals (Chester vs Ihmotep)

Our Chester Clippers Basketball Program played hard against the Ihmotep Panthers but came up short in the semi-finals. The Clippers took the floor without their Commander in Chief (Keith Taylor). Coach Taylor was hospitalized the morning of the game. However, that didn't stop Coach Taylor from his assignment. Coach Taylor called in from the hospital during halftime to encourage his team and coaching staff. "We are better than what I see. Be smart and take care of the ball." The Clippers opened the third quarter with more aggression. As per assistant coach Terry Thomas, "it was a 9-2 run to close the margin at 27-41 with 5 minutes to play in the third quarter. The Clippers hustled and played tough until the final buzzer. However, Ihmotep advanced to the State Championship.
