Holy Cross won’t be going to Mohegan Sun. The Crusaders lost to Immaculate, 74-58, in the Class S semifinals at Masuk.
But they’ll at least have memories of this incredible 80-foot hook shot by senior Jon Howard under extreme duress at the halftime buzzer.

Mowatt’s miracle shot cut Immaculate’s lead to 35-27 at halftime, giving the Crusaders much-needed momentum going into the third quarter.
Mowatt led the Crusaders with 21 points. Alas for Holy Cross, it couldn’t stop Immaculate’s Darius Smith, who scored 28 points to lead the Mustangs back to the Class S championship for the first time since winning it all in 2012.
Immaculate now faces Coginchaug in the state championship game at Mohegan Sun.
