Mt.Vernon High School Vs. New Rochelle High School Half Court Shot
By: Mike Stone
Two of my close friends from college grew up less than ten miles away from each other outside New York City. My friend K-Baum(yes we still use nicknames) is a proud graduate of Mt.Vernon High School which produced basketball legends Gus and Ray Williams, Scooter and Rodney McCray and former Piston Ben Gordon. My other friend Sherms attended New Rochelle High School which has proud alums such as Andrea Mitchell and Baltimore Raven Ray Rice.
Sunday the schools faced off in the New York Section 1 Class AA Final and both Sherms and K-Baum were there. What they witnessed was one of the wildest endings I have ever seen.
