Albuquerque (N.M.) Eldorado High senior guard Caitlin Duree still isn't sure this shot was real.
"I didn't know if it counted or not, because I didn't know if I got it off in time," she told the Albuquerque Journal of her game-winning 70-foot heave against crosstown rival La Cueva in a district championship game (h/t USA TODAY). "It was unreal. Like, oh my God, did that really just happen?"
It was real, all right. After La Cueva's Mandy Perea sank a couple clutch free throws to give her team a one-point lead with 1.7 seconds remaining, Duree connected on a prayer from the same spot where Perea took her freebies -- only on the opposite basket, for a 66-64 victory.
Given a day to process the incredible shot, she was remarkably gracious on Twitter.
