Mount St. Mary’s opens league play with buzzer-beating win

1 Comment

Despite averaging only 5.8 points per game over the last season and a half, Mount St. Mary’s junior forward Chris Wray is developing a clutch reputation.

After LIU Brooklyn’s Nura Zanna tied the score at 65-all, Wray went coast-to-coast in 4.2 seconds, scooping in a left-handed layup at the buzzer to lift the Mountaineers to a dramatic 67-76 road victory over the Blackbirds on Thursday evening in the Northeast Conference opener.

Wray ended with seven points in 17 minutes of action.

Last season, Wray threw down a game-winning dunk with 1.3 seconds left as Mount St. Mary’s defeated George Mason, 78-76. The 6-foot-8 forward posted career highs of 21 points and 10 rebounds in that win.
