Basketball team rallies around one of their own

2 On Your Side's Dooley O'Rourke brings us the story of a Sherman High School basketball team who rallied around a student.

SHERMAN, N.Y. - It was a great moment on the high school basketball court in the Chautauqua County community of Sherman.

It involves a high school senior Tucker Pierce, who lives with Down Syndrome.

Earlier in the year, he started attending the basketball team's practice. In response, the team adopted him as the water boy. Wednesday night, during the senior night game against Cassadega, they put Tucker on the court and he made a basket. It was a moment that made both teams, coaches, can fans celebrate.

Tucker's basket was part of a big night for his teammates. Sherman won 63-39.
