POTY Contender: High School Basketball Team Wins Championship On Miracle 3/4 Court Buzzer Beater
March Madness is already here for Ardsley High School in New York state. They are celebrating after winning its division championship on an incredible 3/4 court buzzer beater. Julian McGarvey of Ardsley High School made it happen with his miracle shot that just beat the clock.
The Ardsley Panthers were down by two with 2.4 seconds left in the game against the Tappan Zee Dutchmen from Orangeburg, New York. The worst part is that the Dutchmen had possession and were inbounding the ball. The Dutchmen tossed the ball 3/4s down the court, but McGarvey intercepted the pass at his own three-point line, turned, and hurled a Hell Mary. The heave-ho somehow went in, gave the Panthers a 52-51 win, and instantly became a play of the year contender. That shot would give Ardsley High School the win in the New York Class A sectional final.
