T he moment Jason Waterman’s 3 went up, you couldn’t help but wonder what was going through Dan Waterman’s mind. The Negaunee coach is one of the more emotional in the UP, and his son just launched a shot that went against every basketball rule there is. Up two, just over a minute left, and a 3 is shot?
“There’s two parts. One, I wasn’t happy because that’s not the right shot for that situation,” Dan said. “And two, I’m proud of him for wanting the ball in that situation and having the ability to make the shot. It’s the classic, ‘No, no, no. Yes,” type of deal.”
