With 4:50 remaining in the third quarter, a dream year could have come to a screeching halt for senior point guard Madison Jones (Raleigh, N.C./Ravenscroft) who picked up his fourth foul in the 3-A private schools state championship game.

With so much riding on the moment, Jones decided to challenge a shot he had no business being near.

“I knew as soon as I jumped they were going to call a foul,” Jones said. “I knew I shouldn’t have did it. I should have just let it go.” That single split-second decision could wind up being the only questionable choice of his entire senior season.
