    HS Buzzer Beater

    Saw this on Digg. Sorry if it has already been posted. Pretty cool buzzer beater.

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    The best part was how the guys just walk off the court like it's no big deal.

    Re: HS Buzzer Beater

    Well one team has three total points, so it's either incredibly early in the game or somebody's getting smoked. Either you've got most of the game to go or the outcome is already decided, and you're not going to celebrate a fluke shot in either situation. No doubt a crazy shot, but no reason to celebrate it when it's just the shot clock expiring.

    Back when I was hooping we practiced shots like that all the time for that specific reason. It's actually not as hard as it looks. If you put the time in, you could probably make that shot 2 out of 10 times.

    I think it is just the end of the first quarter. If it was just the shot clock, a timeout would have to have been called to stop the action, otherwise the game continues, provided they beat the shot clock.

    Good eyes catching the scoreboard. You're probably right. No reason to rub it in (assuming they're the ones ahead.) Even so, I'd at aleast be smiling if made that shot.

    Please tell me that you are joking. I can only assume that you are.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?
