The 2019-20 season is in the rear view mirror. There were many stellar plays that the Westchester Knicks produced during the season, which drew oohs and ahhs from the crowd in Westchester. From defensive possessions by Kadeem Allen and J.J. Moore to a clutch three-pointer by Tyler Hall, there were 10 plays that stood out.
Here’s a look back at the top plays of the season.
10. Buzzer Beater
On January 19, Westchester took on the Capital City Go-Go in their first of two meetings of the season. The Knicks had a 82-76 lead in the final moments of the third quarter and had the final possession. As the clock started to wind down, Tim Bond dished it to V.J. King, who worked his way around one defender and finished with the layup to beat the buzzer. King finished with 11 points and four rebounds on a near perfect 4-of-5 shooting from the field.
9. Huge Shot By Lamar Peters
Westchester trailed the Wisconsin Herd, 57-44, at the half in their March 6 meeting. The Knicks cut it to single digits and trailed their opponents by four points heading into the final minute of the game. Fast forward to the final 12 seconds and Kadeem Allen dished a quick pass to Lamar Peters who drained a corner three. Peters was fouled and made the free throw to complete the four-point play. While the Knicks didn’t win the game, the team fought until the end against the top team in the G League.
8. Two For One Blocks
Four minutes into the first quarter against the Santa Cruz Warriors, Juan Toscano-Anderson forced a turnover and pushed it to Devyn Marble who looked to score a layup in transition. Kadeem Allen trailed the play and blocked Marble at the rim. That was Allen’s second block in the first five minutes of the opening quarter.
A month later, Westchester took on the Lakeland Magic in their first game of a home-and-home. In the final minute of the third quarter, Jon Davis took on J.J. Moore at the basket. Moore kept Davis in front of him and blocked his shot.
7. Kenny Wooten With The Rejection
At the midway point of the second quarter, Jerian Grant found an opening and was looking to finish with the basket. Kenny Wooten met Grant at the rim and denied his layup attempt. That was Wooten’s second block of the game and he finished with five in the game. The Knicks two-way player totaled five or more blocks in a game 11 times in his rookie season.
6. Clutch Three From Tyler Hall
After falling behind 71-63 to the Raptors 905, Westchester outscored their opponents in the second half to force overtime. With less than 30 seconds left in the game, Lamar Peters drove to the basket and drew two defenders in. Peters kicked it out to Tyler Hall who drained a three from the right wing, which forced overtime. Hall finished with 21 points, four rebounds, and two steals on 6-of-10 shooting from beyond the arc.
