Bryce Carpenter couldn't do this again if he tried.
As regulation expired on Saturday night, the Grandview (Wash.) High senior forward's layup attempt to break a 65-65 tie sat on the rim -- and stayed there (h/t Big Lead). This sort of thing doesn't happen in the backyard, let alone on a full-speed, fast-break opportunity at the most crucial moment of an undefeated team's season.
At least Merriam-Webster has a new definition for anticlimactic.
Alas, Carpenter's Greyhounds defeated Prosser (Wash.) High, 72-70 in overtime. Grandview remained undefeated thanks to another game-winning layup attempt, courtesy of Isaiah Gonzalez (via Yakima Herald), that didn't stay on the rim for perpetuity.
