Buzzer beater of all time

Every once in awhile something will happen at a sporting event that prompts strangers to sidle up to those of who write sports for a living, and say something like this: "OK, smart guy, so how would you write that up?"

Thus it is with this, which just about everyone in America has seen now.

How would I write it up?

Home truth: I have no. Earthly. Idea.

(Although I might throw in a "Dick Van Dyke Show" reference, considering New Rochelle is where the fictional Rob and Laura Petrie lived. Maybe I'd say the buzzer-beater was the greatest athletic feat seen in those parts since this).
