Despite a halftime lead of 10 points, Whitacre could not not overcome foul trouble and a flurry of 3 pointers by Orff in the second half. Orff will now advance to the Elite 8va, facing the winner of this afternoon's Sousa versus Shostakovich. |
Orff was typically gracious in victory. "He's (Whitacre) the strongest competitor in playoffs and it showed. When I found out I was playing him, I had to go earlier than planned with O Fortuna to beat him. But, he'll be back next year. With his dream-team coaches Claude (DeBussy) and Leroy (Anderson), you know that's guaranteed."
Advancing to the Elite 8va so far:
Mozart in a back and forth topples Bernstein
Faure made it look easy in defeating Holst
Handel won in an exciting triple overtime match versus Sibelius
Stravinsky defeated Resphigi on a last second 3 pointer
Whitacre verus Orff
Sousa takes on Shostakovich
Whitacre throws it all out there against perrenial competitor Orff:
Orff not messing around:
SOUSA VERUS SHOSTAKOVICH
