Buzzer Beater by Penn State Abington's Josh Howard Voted ECAC Video Play of the Week

ABINGTON, Pa. - The men's basketball team at Penn State Abington took the ECAC Video Play of the Week for the period ending Sunday, Feb. 19.  Videos from February 13-19 were eligible for the competition voted on by the fans.

Josh Howard's deep three helped Abington take the contest, receving 58 percent of total entries with almost 1,400 votes.  Division I Mount Saint Mary's men's basketball came in second with 39 percent of the vote, aided by Parker's put-back dunk.

At 10 p.m. Wednesday night, the race was on as Mount Saint Mary's began to edge into the lead for a brief moment, then finally, around 11 p.m., the Penn State community roared to life and overtook the lead for good.
