VIDEO: LeBron James cheers alma mater on Twitter after state semi victory

By

Let the record show that King James was watching.

LeBron James, a proud product of Akron private high school St. Vincent-St. Mary (SVSM), took to Twitter Thursday to cheer his alma mater’s dramatic, buzzer-beating victory in the state semifinal. Facing off against Trotwood-Madison in the Ohio Division II tournament, the game was knotted 60-60 when SVSM used a pair of huge plays to pull away.

First, senior Jonathan Williams stepped in to come through with a huge steal in the game’s final 30 seconds. Moments later Jayvon Graves dropped in a floater as time expired to send the Fighting Irish to the title game.

LeBron’s take on the shot was as effusive as you might imagine:

Graves, whose game-winner sent the SVSM bench and fan section into hysterics, led the game with 22 points. Naturally, none were as big as the Buffalo-commit’s final bucket. Given his reaction to the semifinal win, something tells us LeBron will be watching the season’s final game for the Irish, too.
