Nashua-Plainfield’s Isaac Chambers gets loose underneath the hoop for an easy basket in Monday night’s game against Clarksville.

Rallying and somehow advancing

Down by seven points, Huskies use furious rally in final three minutes to extend their season

The play called for Isaac Chambers to use a screen from teammate Dawson Schmitt and get a short jumper.  Instead, the Nashua-Plainfield sophomore improvised just a bit.  “I saw I had a pretty clear path to the basket and the way my jumper had been falling — or not falling — I went with it,” Chambers said, “and thankfully I got the layup.”  As the ball made its way down the net, the clock showed less than a second, and Nashua-Plainfield had completed a furious comeback Monday night to beat Clarksville 42-40 and extend its season.  The first-round Class 1A district victory advanced the Huskies to a date with seventh-ranked Don Bosco tonight [Thursday] in Ackley.  More on the story may be found in the Feb. 16 Reporter.
