Dora High School has three brothers on its squad.
In fact, they’re triplets.
Auston, Bryson and Mason Luna are on Dora High School’s basektball team.
Video circulated on the internet this week, showing No. 34 Auston get fouled but instead having his brother, No. 20 Bryson, take the free-throw in his place.
The Missouri State High School Activities Association is looking into complaints of the Dora Falcons switching players to shoot free throws after a pair of videos from Saturday’s Cabool Tournament Championship began making their rounds on social media.
“We are gathering as much information as we can right now,” MSHSAA Communications Director Jason West said about the calls his office has received about Saturday’s game.
The plays in question come at the free throw line and centers around Dora’s talented triplets in a tightly contested, 63-61 Falcons win over Licking.
The first one shows Dora’s #34 Auston Luna get fouled in the far corner of the court. As he walks to the make-shift team huddle at the top of the key, his brother #20 Bryson Luna goes to the line to take his shots.
Auston, who was fouled, runs over to the bench.
The second video shows #34 Auston Luna is fouled again, this time at the elbow. He then hands the ball to #23 Mason Luna who throws it to the ref and takes the free throw line. Again, Auston heads to the bench.
This is the benefit to having triplets on your team.
Of course if the refs were paying attention, they should have noticed the numbers on the player’s jersey.
That’s why players wear numbers.
Refs faults for not doing their jobs.
The twins urge to switch places is too hard for them to ignore.
