St. Francis-Brooklyn beats Saint Francis (PA) on Chris Hooper’s buzzer-beating follow (VIDEO)
With Bryant having moved to 5-1 in conference play with a win over Central Connecticut State on Saturday, St. Francis-Brooklyn and Saint Francis (PA) were playing for a share of first place Sunday afternoon in Loretto, Pennsylvania. And as expected the game went down to the wire, with the Red Flash erasing a nine-point second half deficit and leading by a point with 7.5 seconds remaining following two Greg Brown free throws.
But Glenn Braica’s Terriers weren’t done, even with Brent Jones’ floater missing the mark. Chris Hooper managed to corral the miss in traffic, and falling away from the basket managed to knock down the follow as time expired. Originally the shot was waved off by an official, but after video review it was ruled that Hooper’s bank shot did count.
Final score: Terriers 60, Red Flash 59.
