There will be plenty of buzzer beaters in March during the NCAA tournament, but it will be hard for any of them to top Julian McGarvey’s 3/4 miracle heave that won New York’s Section 1 Class A championship for Ardsley High School over Tappan Zee, on Saturday
With a 51-49 lead with 2.4 seconds left, Tappan Zee attempted to burn off the remaining seconds with a long inbound pass. Incredibly, McGarvey managed to intercept the pass, collect himself and launch a 3/4 prayer from around his own foul line before time expired. It went in, giving Ardsley the 52-51 win and the state title. Complete chaos ensued.
The madness has officially arrived.
