St. Johns started the first half very slow and was down by 15 at the half showing no signs of life, but MSG lit up when St. Camillus Special Olympics and Connor's Place took the court at half time and played a quick full court game.   They ran the court as if they owned it, and the crowd roared at every shot that was taken.   All athletes played as if they were pro's and played to the crowd and they were explosive.  The experience will last a life time for all the participants and Connor continues to talk about how he played at MSG til this very day.  He talks about how they went into the tunnel waiting to be called out and how the cheer leaders cheered them on.   Everyone involved was so welcoming and you could feel the love in the Garden.   On our way back up to our seats, everyone was high fiving and clapping.  The feeling was great and you could see the smiles on their faces and the excitement spilled out of them all night long.
