From zero to hero: New York high school player wins the state basketball...


Seconds after committing what he thought would be a fatal mistake, a New York high school basketball player heaved and made a last-second shot nearly the length of the court as time expired, winning his team the state title.

Julian McGarvey of Ardsley High School in Ardsley, New York missed two free throws with 3.9 seconds remaining in the New York State Class A Section 1 high school title game. 

With his team trailing 51-49 to Tappan Zee High School, McGarvey managed to intercept the subsequent inbounds pass, and chucked the ball as far as he could.

Lucky for him, his aim was true, and the made three-point shot handed Ardsley the win and the championship. Fans then rushed the court in jubilation to celebrate with the team.
