VIDEO: Union Catholic wins summer league game against Roselle with buzzer beater from the backside

By

Roselle Catholic has been a conveyor belt of top college-bound talent in recent seasons, none more notable than Isaiah Briscoe. No matter how high profile Roselle’s athletes are, the next generation, now current middle schoolers, couldn’t top Union Catholic counterparts at a recent Raritan Bay Summer League contest.

That was notable to a degree in itself, but it was the way that win came to fruition that truly stood out.

With the game on the line in a 49-49 tie, a Union Catholic player found himself with the ball in his hands and his feet giving way beneath him. There was only one thing to do: Hurl up a prayer and, well, pray for the best.

Sometimes that’s enough, as the fates allowed against the always-feted Roselle. It’s a serious contender for shot of the 2016 summer leagues, and it’s the kind of bucket that no one would be able to recreate if they tried.
