San Diego High School Basketball : Aland Hits Winner for Grossmont

December 16, 1987

Tommy Aland made a layup at the buzzer to give Grossmont High School a 61-60 Grossmont League victory at home over Granite Hills Tuesday.

Mike Locke had put Granite Hills ahead with a layup with six seconds left, but Jason Foggiano dribbled the length of the court and threw a bounce pass to Aland, who was alone under the basket for the game-winner.

Granite Hills slowed Foggiano and Lance Williams, who were averaging 23 points each coming into the game. Williams scored 10 points and Foggiano had 9.

But Aland and Kevin McIntyre responded with career-high point totals for Grossmont (5-1 overall and 2-1 in league). Aland had 18 points and McIntyre 16.
