Madison Scott approached the baseline, her long arms dangling at her sides. Behind her was Aliyah Matharu, her teammate on the Bishop McNamara girls' basketball team and another key piece of a fearsome full-court press.

It was December 1, just a few days into the season, and McNamara was five seconds away from earning a victory over Hamilton Heights Academy, the Tennessee powerhouse ranked fourth in the country by USA Today. The Mustangs were up by three points and all they needed was a stop.

Scott was assigned to the in-bounder and Matharu shadowed a guard. Both of them took their spots and then stood completely still, waiting for the whistle and their chance to win. When it came, they burst into motion and harassed the Hawks, helping to force a bad shot and secure a statement victory.
