Vanessa Parrotta swished from three-quarters court at the buzzer to give Aquinas a stunning 40-39 win over Batavia in Batavia Tuesday night. 

Parrotta inbounded from underneath her own basket with five seconds to go. The pass went to Nina Starkweather, but forced her back towards Parrotta and the AQ basket. Starkweather immediately gave the ball back to Parrotta at her own free throw line. Parrotta dribbled once and then let fly from a few feet beyond her own three point line. The ball hit the back rim, but was never going anywhere but down. 

Batavia had a chance to ice the game, but missed the front end of a 1-and-1 just before Parrotta's dramatic shot. 

The win improves Aquinas to 7-9, while Batavia falls to 12-4.
