Just 30 seconds later, Beciri caught a perfect outlet on a fast break and expertly finished the layup. , drawing a foul in the process
Naturally, he and the team loved it – and Beciri wasted no time tracking down Herenda before giving him a big hug in front of the bench.
What a perfect way to end your basketball career
