The new Newton North Reggie Gym has seen a lot of big moments in the two and a half years its been open, but Thursday night was definitely one of the most memorable so far.
Gallagher, 17, has been the Tigers' basketball team manager for four years. But during Thursday's Senior Night game, Coach Paul Connolly decided to let Gallagher have some time to shine on the court, WHDH reported.
And what a big moment it was -- when Gallagher hit the shot, the crowd in the Reggie went wild.
Check out the YouTube video above showing the big shot.
“I could feel the whole entire building shaking…I mean, under me, the floor was just rumbling,” Gallagher told WHDH. “It was the best feeling in my life. My only varsity game, and it’s senior night and I just banked the first shot as I got in.”
