Shocker at the Buzzer for New Rochelle HS

Khalil Edney's 3-point prayer is answered as New Rochelle stuns Mount Vernon.

New Rochelle High School football quarterback Khalil Edney found himself in the right place at the right time during the Class AA Section 1 Basketball Championship game against Mount Vernon Sunday afternoon.

With just seconds on the clock and New Rochelle down by two points, Mount Vernon stole the ball and thinking the clock was about to run out, Mount Vernon's Jalen David threw the ball into the air and it came down in Edney's hands at the Mount Vernon foul line.

The State Champion quarterback then threw another touchdown from three-quarters of the court into the net as the buzzer sounded. Both pandemonium and confusion then erupted as both teams and their fans stormed the court in celebration thinking they had won—Mount Vernon thinking the clock had run out before the shot.

After reviewing the video, officials confirmed the shot was taken before the buzzer, with just 1/10 of a second remaining and the basket counted, giving New Rochelle the unbelievable 61-60 win.
