Rain came pouring throgh the roof of the Hunt Center in the first minute of a women’s basketball game Saturday afternoon … and things didn’t get too much better after that for Paris Junior College.
The game was stopped just 53 seconds into play and was delayed for about 40 minutes. How hard was the water pouring? “Like a faucet,” one of the referees said.
A workman was called in to go high, high, high and tie a towel around the leak. That did it.
But the Paris women went on to lose 63-51 to Trinity Valley Community College, which was unbeaten last season and won the national junior college women’s championship. Neither has TVCC lost on the court this season. The Lady Cardinals’ only blemish was a forfeit in late November because six players got suspended and there weren’t enough players to take the court against Weatherford.
Paris also lost the men’s game — 81-73 to Lee College.
