#2 – A remarkably deep three beats the buzzer for New Fairfield’s Kristen Teklits
Connecticut basketball fans have seen just about everything over the years of the finals at Mohegan Sun; buzzer-beating championships, stunning indvidual performances, thrilling comebacks, etc. But it may not have seen a shot quite like the 3-pointer that New Fairfield’s Kristen Teklits buries from approximately 30 feet that sent both teams into halftime with the game tied. Teklits’ performance in the Class M final was a virtuoso effort — scoring 25 of her team’s 41 points while also adding seven rebounds, four steals, and two assists — and her signature play was this shot that propelled her team to its first state title since 1992.
