Hobart Wendy’s Classic champs with amazing play

An amazing finish in local DIII basketball for the Hobart Statesmen earlier this week in the Wendy’s College Classic in Rochester. Hobart went the length of the floor in 3 seconds with a baseball pass from baseline to the opposite sideline, and a touch pass to senior Matt Pebole whose layup beat the buzzer to lift the Statesmen to a 71-70 victory over the College at Brockport in the semifinals of the Wendy’s College Classic at RIT. You can watch a video of the amazing play below.Then, in Saturday’s final, the Statesmen rallied from an eight-point deficit in the second half and defeated last year’s champion Nazareth 72-63, winning for the first time in the 46-year history of the Wendy’s College Classic.Hobart is now 6-0 to start their 2011-12 campaign.
