Maybe head coach Danny Hurley has something special brewing this season on Staten Island.

Wagner, one week removed from a big non-conference road win over Pittsburgh, got a little holiday magic to lift them to their third straight win.

Best part of the video?

Just after the shot falls, the color commentator vehemently denies any possibility of that shot counting. Then when the referee signals that the basket’s good at the 0:28 mark, the guy reacts like he just heard news that someone ate the last of the Christmas cookies.

The shot is reminiscent of this Larry Bird shot, back in 1986.
