Senior Aiden Badalamenti hit a shot he won't soon forget.

The 5-foot-10 Rocky Mountain High School guard nailed a last-second 3-pointer that gave Lobos a 61-60 victory over previously unbeaten Fossil Ridge High School on Friday (Feb. 19).

Badalamenti scored a career-high nine points in the victory. For his big-game heroics, he's this week's Townsquare Media High School MVP.

He recently walked us through the clutch play:

In one word exhilarating. It had been a tight game since the tip-off, one team would take a little lead then the other would bring it back. We were running a play for my teammate Aidan Kuhl to score, but once he came off the double ball screen my defender went and helped on him and I was wide open. Once I saw that I knew he was going to get me the ball, and he did. I caught the ball and shot it with no hesitation, but bricked it, then our big man got the board and kicked it out to me again and I knew I wouldn't miss twice.  It's a shot I will remember for the rest of my life something me and my teammates will never forget.


The Lobos have been on a surge of late. After losing 3 of the first 4 games, Rocky Mountain has now won six of its past seven games.

Badalamenti and the Lobos next play Poudre High School on Friday. Follow along on our live prep game action with our Prep Scoreboard.
