It wasn't the same South Carroll Cavaliers that fans have grown accustomed to seeing.
Nicole Spencer sat helplessly on the bench for the entrie second half with an ice pack on her knee. Cee Wagener and Lindsey Vosloh were both in early foul trouble and Melissa Gettemy fouled out late.
On top of that, the No. 5 Cavs ran into an aggressive Walt Whitman team that came ready to play.
As the final seconds wound down on a South Carroll season that featured 22-straight wins, the familiar reserves were on the floor.
Only this time, it was the Cavaliers who were on the loosing side of a 60-41 decision as top-seeded Whitman came away with the Class 3A West Region last night.
"This was the kind of season you just dream about as a coach. We had 12 players who treated each other like sisters. It was just one of those nights," said South Carroll coach Al Skierski.
The Cavaliers started slow and did all they could to recover, but as the game wore on they simply ran out of resources. The offense was filled with missed shots and careless turnovers as the Cavs managed only eight points well into the second quarter.
Wagener and Vosloh both picked up their third fouls early in the second quarter and Spencer hobbled off the court midway through the second quarter after landing hard upon her knee.
