Middleburg, VA (Mar. 1, 2016) – In a hard fought Feb 26th contest between the Middleburg Academy Dragons and the visiting Clinton Christian Eagles; after drawing a shooting foul, Middleburg’s Andrew Corum sank the second of two free throws to take a one-point lead with 5.5 seconds left in the game. As fortune would have it, a Clinton Christian player in-bounded the ball, broke free for a clear attempt at a basket, was fouled, and drained both free throws to flip the score 68 – 67 in their favor with 1.6 seconds on the clock.
In that sliver of time, Middleburg sharpshooter AJ Robinson caught the ball on the run, took a dribble, set and swished his shot just before the half-court line with zero time on the clock to win the game.
Aaron Wyche was on hand to capture the thrilling victory and posted this PHOTO GALLERY with 46 images.
