Trailing by 12 points to begin the fourth quarter, the Mariner Tritons needed something special Saturday night.

Donald Minto provided the lift the Tritons needed in the form of a buzzer-beating three-point basket to beat Community School of Naples 52-49.

A 23-8 blitz in the final eight minutes brought the Tritons back from a 41-29 deficit. Rodney Hunter hit a three-point shot with 30 seconds remaining to give the Tritons their first lead in the final period. After CSN tied the game up, Minto found Hunter behind the arc in time to get him the ball and shoot to seal the victory.

Hunter finished with a team- and game-high 15 points while Minto tallied 13. Kendrec Ferrara added 12 pints to go with 12 rebounds and Rick Moore chipped in with 10 points.

The Tritons (16-5) play at Fort Myers on Tuesday.
