St. John Bosco (Bellflower, Calif.) was ranked No. 10 in our preseason national rankings. But after a pair of disappointing tournament losses last week, the Braves were bounced from the first edition of the regular season rankings.

Saturday in Chicago, Bosco bounced back by stunning No. 6 Whitney Young on a buzzer beater in the final seconds by Connecticut-bound senior Daniel Hamilton. Take a look (Footage appears to have been taken by Sean Moran @SeanMoHoops):



The shot gave St. John Bosco a 62-59 win in the featured matchup of the Chicago Elite Classic and a 3-2 record on the season. The Braves next take the floor against defending Florida 3A champ Providence (Jacksonville) at the City of Palms Classic in Fort Myers, Fla.

For Whitney Young, 6-foot-10 center Jahlil Okafor finished with 24 points and 12 rebounds according to Mike Helfgot of the Chicago Tribune.
