New Rochelle High School Stuns Mount Vernon On Miracle Buzzer-Beater (VIDEO)

One of the craziest shots of the year.

Oh my goodness.

Earlier today, in the New York Class AA Championship, Khalil Edney of New Rochelle High School hit a miraculous shot to defeat powerhouse Mount Vernon 61-60, in turn securing a trip to the state regional semifinal. The play went something like this: Down 1 with 2.9 seconds left, New Rochelle’s inbound pass was swatted down by a Mount Vernon defender, only the ball fell into Edney’s hands. The senior forward then simultanesouly gathered himself and launched a three-quarter-court shot that—in hard-to-believe fashion—somehow went in. Check out the unbelievable sequence (a closer, second-by-second clip appears at 2:35), and subsequent reactions from both teams, above.

    Holy shiiiiieeeeeeeetttt, when you throw the ball up so they don’t foul you, make sure you throw it high enough.

    Shot was late. And it was funny how the team in white started their own celebration to sway the refs

  • to

    if you watched the whole video you would have seen that the shot was clearly good

    Did you stick around for the slow-mo replay? That was obviously fully released from his hands at 0.1s.

  • right

    you’re loose at point 1.

    Craziest shot ever……all that kid has to do is hold the ball…..the More mentally focused team won…clearly.

    Since when the clock started isn’t reviewable(is it?) then the shot is good. But there appears to be a slight delay between when the ball was initially deflected and when the clock started. At any rate, next time hold the ball and take your chances at the foul line

    Even cooler because of the team’s LONG-TERM rivalry. I went to Mamaroneck, which usually loses to both of these teams, but in my old age I’ve become more of a Mount Vernon supporter. Still, I respect both teams and have very fond memories of playing against New Ro’s current coach, “Crabby” Young. Awesome all around. #Westchester
