Momentum is such a strange thing in sports. It can come from so many different factors: a deep shot on offense with someone tightly guarding the shooter, someone coming in off of the bench and providing a spark, a big defensive stop, or any other number of other factors.
In basketball, though, momentum can stop with one blow of the whistle. Thursday, February 25, 2021

Usually, time of possession is a stat that is used in football games, not basketball games due to the shot clock. But, in Illinois high school games, there is no shot clock, so teams are able to possess the ball for as long as the defense doesn’t stop them.
That helped the Nokomis Redskins on Thursday night against South Fork as they were able to hang on for the 50-46 victory in overtime. Friday, February 12, 2021
