This is a cool video of last second buzzer beating basket by Austin Groff. He is a guard for the Twin Valley South high school in Ohio. He was trying to move the ball for a final shot along the left perimeter as the final seconds of the championship game's opening period ticked away. Instead, his pass was deflected, sending the ball toward the midcourt line, where Groff tracked it down with his back facing the basket. That's when calls of "shoot it!" started to come from the Twin Valley South sideline. With no time to think, Groff tossed up an almost ludicrous, two-handed backwards heave toward the basket ... and nailed it.
While it wasn't a game winner, it's still pretty cool to see the way the kid tosses the ball behind his back and swishes it into the basket..........
Here’s an impressive buzzer beater from way beyond mid court at a New Jersey High School game. Not behind the back, though.
Nice video, was it a game winner?
By the way, is it just me me or is FR real slow and having troubles today? I keep getting kicked off and told the server is down. Is anyone else experiencing the same troubles with FR today?
Thanks for the ping!
Wow. Amazing shot!
