Nurideen Lindsey was at the line, in the waning seconds, with his team down one point. One to tie and likely force overtime -- and a pair would almost certainly give St. John's a victory.
Then Anna Cate Kennedy did her thing.
The 7-year daughter of Texas A&M coach Billy Kennedy, sitting in the stands about 30 feet from Lindsey, was the difference-maker.
She left out a pair of shrieks prior to Lindsey's free throws -- both of which failed to drop through the net.
"Yes, sir," Anna Cate responded after the game when asked if she felt as though she was the reason why Lindsey misfired.
Anna Cate has been doing it for a year or so - but Kennedy has told her to done it down a bit on the road.
"People say it works," Anna Cate said.
If I was Kennedy, I'd be handing the game ball to Anna Cate.
