It was a moment that the team and its fans will remember for the rest of their lives.
The Fairfield Prep Jesuits won some great games and helped close out Alumni Hall with a bang this past season.
Senior BJ Wentzel served as team manager for two years while he battled severe Crone’s disease. He had not seen any game time action in his career.
But when it came time for him to shine in the team’s final game, he was put into the lineup and launched a three-pointer from well beyond the men’s college line – and drained it.
"I didn't care where I was on the court, I'm pretty confident behind the line," he told News 12.
