VIDEO: Caldwell pulls out tight one against Montclair Kimberley
Written by - Tuesday, February 23 2016  

Caldwell relied on the three-point shot to keep its girls' basketball game against Montclair Kimberley close. But in the final minutes of the contest, the Chiefs found other ways to score, and pulled out a 50-46 victory on Senior Night.

Down in the fourth quarter, Caldwell closed the game on a 9-1 run that did not include any three-pointers. Up until that point, 30 of the 41 points scored by the Chiefs had come by way of the trey.
