HOBOKEN – As Hoboken’s Jasmine Erickson stepped to the foul line late in a tie game she knew that the outcome was on her shoulders. Never in her basketball life had she been put in a position with the game on the line and just seconds remaining. But with it being Senior Night at Hoboken and her teammates cheering her on, Erickson had to block out everything and focus on getting the job done for those seniors. Erickson knocked down the first free throw with 3.6 seconds remaining to make Senior Night a successful one for Hoboken with a 40-39 victory over St. Dominic Academy on Monday at Hoboken High School. “This was a really close game and we really wanted to win this for our seniors,” said Erickson. “We’re a team that has won close games so we knew we could do it. I wanted to help the seniors make this a night to remember and I’m really happy we got this win for them.” MORE...
