NEW CANAAN — Danny Melzer typically doesn’t celebrate at the end of basketball games. However, following the latest victory for his New Canaan, Melzer made an exception.
Junior Ryan McAleer intercepted a long inbounds pass and then banked in a 3-point shot from halfcourt to give New Canaan a wild 52-49 victory over the Stamford Black Knights in front of a packed house Thursday night at NCHS.
“I celebrated — I never celebrate,” Melzer, the Rams’ head coach, said. “I’ve never done that in my life, but I didn’t know what to do. I wasn’t expecting it to go in. I was thinking we’ve got overtime and then the ball went in. What a great moment.”
