Local roundup - Goretti loses on another buzzer beater



* BOYS BASKETBALL


MERCERSBURG, Pa. - Antoine McGee hit a 3-pointer from the top of the key with 1.6 seconds to play, lifting No. 5 Mercersburg to a 55-53 victory over No. 7 St. Maria Goretti Thursday night to close the first day of the Mercersburg Rotary Showcase Classic.

McGee's basket came off a kickout from a loose ball scramble under the Blue Storm basket and handed the Gaels their second last-shot loss in the past 10 days.

"We just didn't rebound," Goretti coach Cokey Robertson said. "We couldn't make that stop at the end. But the kids played awful tough again."

Goretti (4-3) trailed by six at halftime but led by one after three quarters to set up the wild finish. Rodney Gibson had 13 points, 10 rebounds and six assists for Goretti, leading four players in double figures.
