If there was any doubt we're in the thick of hoops season, that should be quelled by the overwhelming amount of buzzer beaters that are popping up online at every nook and cranny. We're struggling to keep up with them all, and frankly, this is what we do.
Having too many buzzer beaters also might be the world's single greatest problem, which is why we're thrilled to roll out another edition of InterTubing, which is almost entirely buzzer beaters. Ok, there are a couple dunks and another terrific soccer goal tossed in for good measure, but know that thrilling shots are just the tip of the iceberg.
• Josh Beverly, Delta (Ohio): Delta High star Josh Beverly knocked down bank-shot three as the buzzer sounded in an unnamed game. No word on whether he thanked Tim Duncan for the strategy afterward.
• John Yang, El Monte (Calif.) vs. Mountain View (Calif.): Yes, John Yang's shot off a last-second inbounds pass was impressive, but frankly we're much more impressed by the crowd reaction. Now THAT is how you create high school delirium.
• Kendrick Holeman, Bruning-Davenport/Shickley (Neb.) vs. Tecumseh-Johnson County Central (Neb.): Sometimes a buzzer beater needs an incredible inbounds pass and a remarkably fortuitous bounce just to get a shot. That was the case in Nebraska, where Bruning-Davenport/Shickley captured the third-place game of the recent MUDECAS tournament with this remarkable shot by Kendrick Holeman.
• St. Patricks (N.J.) vs. Milton (Ga.): In case you missed this national showcase game from the City of Palms Classic, here was one of the year's most dramatic final minutes, as recapped by ScoutsFocus, whose Joe Davis was in attendance. Jarrel Lane's three-pointer earned St. Patrick's a huge signature victory, though there was just as much drama ahead of the shot.
• MSS High School (QC): In all honesty, we have absolutely no idea what this Quebec City High School's proper name is, let alone the names of the different players involved in a league championship-winning buzzer beater. Still, it answered one very intriguing question we've been wondering about for months: What happened to all the vuvuzelas?
• Kajon Macks, Serra (Calif.) vs. Bishop Montgomery (Calif.): Kajon Macks may not be one of the nation's foremost high school dunkers, but if he keeps up the explosiveness you see in the dunk below -- which happened during Serra's 62-58 win over Bishop Montgomery last week -- he may be soon.
• Dezmine Wells, Hargrave Military (Va.) vs. St. Thomas More (Conn.): Unlike Macks above, Dezmine Wells is considered one of the nation's best dunkers, and the Xavier recruit showed exactly why on two explosive possessions during last week's HoopHall Classic in Springfield, Mass.
• Stephen Brauchle, Gulfport (Miss.): Stephen Brauchle plays both different types of football for Gulfport High in Mississippi, though this long range goal might make help raise his soccer profile into the upper realms of college recruiting circles. If the goal didn't do it alone, he should receive at least some credit for his celebratory bow.
