New Rochelle beats Mt. Vernon on insane turnover/steal/half-court game winner for Championship

Published on March 3rd, 2013 by Astramskas, David | 6,070 views

You know those Snickers commercials where somebody does something really stupid and/or embarrassing and the voice-over says “Want to get away?”

Number 20 on Mt Vernon could use a Snickers right now after stealing an inbound pass with 2.9 seconds left, up by 2 points, and rather than just holding onto the ball he decides to give it a light toss right into the hands of the inbounder, Khalil Edney,  who catches, shoots and scores on an almost  full court game winner.

I forgot to mention that this game was for the New York Section 1 Class AA Boys Basketball Championship.

Speaking of wanting to get away, check out the refs trying to avoid the pandemonium that rushed onto the court.  Somewhere Mo Pete is smiling.
