St. Bonaventure’s Nelson Kaputo, along with his teammates and the Bonnies fans, watch as his last-ditch three-point shot, his only attempt of the game, travels toward the hoop.

Demand Better From Your Access Merchants Demand Better From Your Access Merchants

A reporter who trades in scoops should have only one responsibility: to get it right. Regardless of the size of the scoop, it can’t be bogus.
