Schaps' tap lifts Niles North past Hoffman Estates
Jan 13, 2016 11:06 PM -
On the first day of practice as a freshman, Niles North senior Olivia Schaps broke her finger. Four years later, she broke the hearts of Hoffman Estates in Wednesday's nonconference girls basketball game in Skokie. With 0.7 seconds on the clock, senior Carolyn Dwyer lobbed in a perfect soft pass over defenders to Schaps. The four-year varsity starter calmly leapt in the air and tapped the ball toward the basket before her feet even touched the ground to hit the winning bucket in Niles North's stunning 54-53 triumph.
