“The atmosphere at the game was electric because you had this really little school and this big school against each other .... It looked like a mismatch.
“The fans were in their seats early. There wasn’t a seat to be had. There were 15,000 plus there that night, which is incredible for high school basketball. When Bobby hit the shot, a lady fainted right in front of me. I remember she had on a red dress, and I thought she had died.”
The Crystal Lake, Ill., resident also reports, “Bobby’s sister, Dottie, was at the game. She had been going to every one of his games since he was in fifth grade .... Bobby had the ball for the last few minutes of the game, but his sister got so nervous, she put her head down and missed seeing” the game-deciding shot.
Jones is excited about being on TV. “It won’t be for more than three to four minutes, but I’m shocked I got that much time.”
