A high school basketball player from Westchester, New York is celebrating after a crazy buzzer beater yesterday.
The score was 60 to 58 with 2.9 seconds left, and a player from the winning team stole an inbound pass, and tossed the ball up in the air to burn the rest of the clock. Which he thought was a smart idea.
He failed to throw it HIGH enough because a player on the other team caught it, and launched a shot from 55 feet away. At first, the referees waved it off, because they didn't think he beat the buzzer. But they overturned it, so the final score was 60 to 61.
