See St. Vincent-St. Mary pull off a thrilling victory.

LeBron James is arguably the greatest player in the NBA and broke the Cleveland sports curse after delivering the city its first championship in 52 years. He knows a hero when sees one.

St. Vincent-St. Mary (Akron) senior Jonathan Williams made a pivotal steal with less than 30 seconds remaining in the Ohio Division II state semifinals Thursday against Trotwood-Madison. Then Buffalo commit Jayvon Graves finished it off with the game-winning floater in the final seconds for a thrilling 62-60 victory.

James couldn't believe what he saw from his alma mater.
Graves dropped 22 points, and his clutch shot propelled the Fighting Irish to the state championship game this Saturday where they'll battle Wauseon (Ohio).
