East Union’s boys basketball team cruised to an 88-56 win over Hatley on Tuesday in the Division 1-2A tournament. If such a blowout doesn’t sound particularly exciting, there was a thrilling moment for the Urchins aside from the victory.

With a few seconds remaining in the first half, East Union’s Ty McDonald missed a free throw, but he made up for it moments later. After a teammate missed a putback attempt, Robinson tracked down the rebound along the sideline, reaching it just before it bounced out of bounds.

Robinson grabbed the ball, jumped and in one motion flipped the ball into the basket for a 3-pointer at the buzzer.
