Think you have seen an amazing basketball highlight recently? This one blows it all away.
Mt. Vernon was leading New Rochelle 60-58, in the New York High School Section 1 Class AA Championship Game. With 2.9 seconds remaining, New Ro was about to inbounds the ball. No one could predict what would occur. [Video Ahead]
The ball is picked off on the inbounds pass, insuring a Mt. Vernon win – except the Vernon player decided to make a weak attempt to throw the ball up in the air and run off the clock.
With .1 seconds left, a New Rochelle player threw up a half-court shot and hit it. Pandemonium. After talking it over, the referees declared the three-pointer to be good, with New Rochelle taking the win 61-60.
An awesome moment for New Rochelle, but a life-shattering moment for the kid who made that blunder.
Nevertheless, one of the top highlights of the year!
