MORRIS – The last offensive play for the Morris girls basketball team Monday night was not drawn up for Mackenzie Lind.
But when the first option was closed off, Lind knew what to do with the ball. With the game against Interstate 8 Conference rival Rochelle tied at 26 with 17 seconds left, Lind received the inbounds pass near the top of the key and looked for teammate Alexis Johnson making a back-door cut. Rochelle had Johnson covered, so Lind dribbled down the lane and took a shot. She missed, but the 5-foot-10 senior got the offensive rebound and put up another shot. This one went straight through the hoop and gave Morris a 28-26 lead with six seconds left.
