Down-to-the-wire action isn't uncommon for local high school basketball, but it doesn't get much more exciting than this week's buzzer beater from half court between the Howard and Rutland boys' teams.
With the game tied and just 10 seconds on the clock, the Rutland 'Canes Antonio McKinney goes coast-to-coast with the go-ahead bucket to take the lead 63-61.
But then, off the inbound pass, Howard's Ray Gantt launches a half-court prayer. That prayer is answered as his shot banks in for three right at the buzzer for the 64-63 victory.
An exciting finish to a very close ball game in Region 2-AAAA.
