Well, this is about the most ridiculous game-winning buzzer-beater you'll ever see.
At any point from the moment the ball fired toward the backboard, ricocheted off the glass, bounced once off the floor and sailed passed the 3-point line, a Middleton (Mich.) Fulton High player could have glanced a fingernail across the ball, and the 0.8 seconds left on the clock would have run out.
Instead, nobody got a hand on the ball until it ended up in Dustin Neyer's hands -- mid-air, mind you -- and the Mt. Pleasant (Mich.) Sacred Heart senior shooting guard shot the ball back off the backboard, around the rim and through the hoop for a stunning 49-47 Class D regional final championship win.
"The way it was set up, I was supposed to set a screen for (Kevin) Gamble right at the top of the key," Neyer told The Morning Sun's Nate Schneider, who captured the shot on Tout. "But Brooks (Hyble) threw it a little hard off the backboard and somehow it landed in my hands. At first I thought the clock had run out, but then I realized you have to touch it for the clock to start. So I just chucked it up and it went in."

Well, I wonder if the coach chewed out the kid who screwed up in-bounding the ball? What a shot!!
