The image: the Mets at the buzzer
Attacked, buried by his partners, Vince Hunter does not see the meeting umpires go to the scorer’s table to check if his basket at the buzzer is valid. He is ! After a few moments of endless waiting, the 27-year-old American interior from Boulogne-Levallois and his partners can once again raise their arms to the sky in joy and anger.
The Cerdan sports hall is happy with it! Vince Hunter, author of an average match so far, is the hero of the night for the Metropolitans, the craftsman of the stunning victory over Orleans (79-78), Friday, at the opening of the 22nd day of Betclic Elite.
Led by one point (77-78) 2 seconds and 3 tenths off the buzzer, after a three-point shot from Nobel Boungou-Colo (who had started the season with the Mets as a medical freelancer), Vincent Collet’s players seized success thanks to this basket in extremis from Vince Hunter.
After a throw-in, the American goes to the basket without an Orleans player being able to stop him. At the last moment, just before the board blushes, he acrobatically tosses the ball into the air.
