New Rochelle’s Khalil Edney Becomes Overnight Celebrity After Crazy Game-Winning Shot Against Mount Vernon
There have been plenty of crazy shots over the years, but it’s safe to say that no shot may be more crazy than the one displayed last weekend by New Rochelle‘s Khalil Edney that has made him an overnight celebrity.
After New Rochelle lost the ball on a turnover with 2.9 seconds left in the New York Section 1 Class AA final down two points, a player on Mount Vernon attempted to just toss the ball up to kill time. Instead, the ball fell into Edney’s hands and he managed to throw up a hail mary with .1 seconds left from 55 feet that ended up going in–giving New Rochelle the 61-60 victory.
What’s even more crazy about this play is the officials originally ruled it as a no basket before going to the replay and overturning the call. It’s always amazing to see miraculous buzzer-beater shots like the one Edney displayed against Mount Vernon, but for a play to go down this way seems nearly impossible to repeat.
As impressive of a shot as this may have been, it’s difficult not to feel bad for the player on Mount Vernon who tried to throw the ball away at the end of the game. Just think if he had put a little more strength into throwing the ball away at the end of the game–this play never would have happened in the first place.
Still, give Edney credit for pulling off a play as impressive as this that will go down as one of the greatest endings in basketball history.
