The last 3 seconds revisited

From the AP game report: "... and with three players draped on her, the 6-foot-8 star's shot fell harmlessly off the rim ..."

From the Honolulu Star-Advertiser game report: "... but she [Griner] came up short on her baseline shot and no one cleanly got the rebound in time."

Not true!

03.0 seconds to go: Griner puts up her shot. Mikaela & Chiney are straight-up guarding Griner. Jos is holding off a couple of Lady Bears.

02.9 seconds to go: Griner's shot is on the way. Chiney is already turning towards the basket. Jos continues holding off possible Lady Bear rebounders.

01.6 seconds to go: Many reach for the rebound.

Chiney, her hands slightly above Griner's, grabs the rebound cleanly and in plenty of time.
