A literal last-second shot helped T.C. Williams claim a boys basketball division title for the first time in more than decade.
The buzzer beater came Friday night as T.C. was tied 42-42 with West Potomac. Star senior TJ Horton received a quick pass and launched a shot from near the three-point line with just a second to go to clinch the win.
Fans stormed the court as T.C. captured its first Gunston District championship in more than 10 years.
