State hoops roundup (Dec. 29): Mount men beat Blackbirds at buzzer to open NEC play

Chris Wray drove the length of the court for a layup as time expired and Mount St. Mary's opened Northeast Conference play with a 67-65 win over host Long Island-Brooklyn on Thursday.

The Blackbirds tied the game on Nura Zanna's putback with 4.2 seconds left before Wray took the ball on the run, got to the left sideline and then angled to the basket for the left-handed layup.

Elijah Long (John Carroll) made all four of his 3-pointers and all seven free throws, and scored 21 points for the Mountaineers (3-11), who trailed 30-21 at the half. Junior Robinson made his six free throws and added 13 points. Mount St. Mary's made 15 of 17 free throws in the second half.
