Residents rebound to victory despite historic Attending comeback
The following is a game description submitted by Chief Resident Captain Alec Kherlopian.
The FINAL SCORE of the Attending/Fellow v Resident Basketball game was 40 – 31. The Residents reign undefeated so far, now an established dynasty with a 4-0 record!
The residents and attendings started off equally well. But then the residents started making more aggressive moves to the basket and making a three-pointer here and there. They were ahead by a few points when it was half time.
At the start of the half, the residents went on an unprecedented run led by new recruits Simarjeer Brar (PGY1) and Kwadwo Ofosu-Barko (PGY1). The residents were down by double digits. But then, the attending team went on an Offensive and Defensive rage, stealing the ball, blocking shots, grabbing rebounds left-and-right, hitting jump shuts, making post-moves, and driving aggressively to the hoop! Twin Towers Dr. Soderland & Dr. Brendan Connell and Splash Brothers Dr. Mike Colancecco and Dr. Imran Hasan led the attendings to greatest comeback since Celtics vs Rockets in December 2017.
The attendings were only 5 points behind. But the coaching changes made by the resident team in conjunction with a shift change by the attendings led to an AMAZING run by the residents, leading to a final victory by the RESIDENTS over the ATTENDINGS/FELLOWS.
No injuries were reported. All reported for their medical duties for their next shift!
