HATTON – Hannah Ust didn’t seem fazed by the chilly reception she received from the raucous Hatton-Northwood student section Monday night.

It probably helped that the MayPort-CG senior captain had ice in her veins.

Trailing by two on senior night in Hatton, Ust knocked down back-to-back free throws with 3.2 seconds remaining to tie the game and drilled a buzzer-beater from the left baseline as the horn sounded to give the Patriots a 39-37 win over the Thunder.

“I’ve always dreamed of doing that,” said Ust, who emerged from the locker room after being mobbed by her teammates.

“It was surreal. It was a great team win. I still can’t believe it.”
