It wasn't looking good for the Assumption boys hoops team on Saturday, as they trailed Pacelli by three points with 2.5 seconds remaining, as the Cardinals had one more free throw that could potentially ice the game. However, the free throw rimmed out, and after bouncing on the floor, Trevor Newton of Assumption grabbed it, took two dribbles, and while straddling the free throw lane, launched a one-handed heave to the other end. Miraculously, it bounced off the backboard and through to tie the game and force overtime.

In the final seconds of overtime as Assumption again trailed, Newton found Joe Grundhoffer in the lane for a basket with just 2.5 seconds left as the Royals pulled off a 61-60 overtime shocker.
