But Antioch's improbable 60-56 overtime win over the visiting Spartans was still nothing short of unbelievable.
De La Salle came into Tuesday's contest with a perfect 18-0 record on the season and 9-0 in BVAL play (and having won each of those nine games by double digits), was riding a 29-game BVAL win streak dating back to 2005 and a 46-game win streak including non-league games. If Torres had factored into his earlier assessment of his team's chances that senior forward Eddie Miller would be held scoreless after the third quarter and center Tim Williams would begin the fourth quarter with four fouls, one might have thought him daft.
But, Miller's 15-point, 15-rebound performance, combined with Williams' amazing play throughout the fourth quarter and overtime period - a stretch in which he scored 14 of his team-high 18 points - allowed the Panthers to weather a 10-0 fourth-quarter run by the Spartans and pull out the amazing overtime win.
The Panthers put their own six-game win streak on the line Friday night when they visit cross-town rival Deer Valley at 7:15 p.m.
