When it comes to our #TweetYourBuzzerBeaters series, Waterford is the undisputed champion.
In the past two seasons and change, the Lancers have produced four winning baskets at the horn.
Kevin Johnson had the granddaddy of them all when he hit one from midcourt last year.
As far as we can tell, Waterford hasn’t needed such heroics during its 17-3 regular season.
That is, until the final game.
Welcome to ‘The Tradition,’ Mikey Buscetto.
With his team tied at Killingly Monday night, the junior guard made a sweet fake move and calmly drained a 3-pointer at the buzzer to propel the Lancers to a thrilling 68-65 victory.
We were given two angles for your perusing pleasure. Watch Buscetto’s deke to set up his shot. Then watch that Waterford swagger after it falls through for the W.
Buscetto finished with a whopping 30 points and had 10 assists to lead the Lancers as they go flying into the ECC’s Division I tournament this weekend. Waterford, a Division II team, earned a berth by winning its regular-season division.
This, of course, has been #TweetYourBuzzerBeaters.
