Lower Cape May needed every one of Shane Szubski's 19 points on Friday night.

With his team trailing by two, the junior point guard netted a three-pointer from the top of the key with 17 seconds left to lift the host Tigers over Oakcrest, 38-37, in a Cape-Atlantic League National boys basketball game.

Lower Cape May's defense proved stingy after allowing 14 points in the opening frame. The Tigers allowed seven points in the second and just three in the third quarter.

The win marked the first divisional triumph of the season for Lower Cape May, whose record now stands at 5-10.
