YORKTOWN, N.Y. – John Jay capped their regular season with a buzzer-beating victory at Yorktown on Wednesday, Feb. 12.
Trailing by 2 points with seconds to go, sophomore guard Ryan Corelli (6 point) took an inbound pass from under the basket, dribbled unguarded the full length of the court, pulled up from behind the arc, and cleanly sank the three-point shot as time expired, giving John Jay a 67-66 victory over the Huskers (watch video of the shot here).
The Indians were led by senior Shane Martinsen, who scored 25 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, and Mason DiFalco, who had 16 points and 4 steals.
Ben Konak (7 points, 1 assist, 3 steals), Andy Kote (6 points), Joey Pink (2 points, 2 rebounds), Nick Devincenzo (2 points, 2 rebounds), Luke Mercer (2 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists), Chris Walsh (1 point, 4 rebounds, 2 assists), and Ben Brevetti (1 rebound) also contributed in the close win.
The buzzer-beating win evened John Jay’s record at 10-10 as they head into the first round of the Section 1 Class A playoffs. John Jay drew the 11th seed and will travel to No. 6 Albertus Magnus on Friday, Feb. 21. If victorious, the quarterfinal game would be held on Wednesday, Feb. 26.
