It wouldn't be another week in prep basketball season without a ridiculous full-court buzzer-beater. Luckily, footage of one arrived from Wisconsin just in time.
As noted by the Post-Crescent, Oshkosh (Wis.) West High hoopster Ryan Sorenson buried a football-style heave from nearly the entire length of the court as the second period wound to a close during his team's matchup with Kaukauna (Wis.) High on Tuesday night. Sorenson's form was spectacular for a javelin thrower, though significantly more unorthodox for basketball.
Luckily for Sorenson that didn't affect the outcome, with the shot miraculously sailing straight through the hoop as if miraculously guided by a laser-tracking system. At the time, the bucket gave Oshkosh West a 28-25 lead at halftime, though that would prove to be short lived, with Kaukauna rallying with a 14-point edge in the fourth quarter to cruise to a 72-53 victory.
Of course, regardless of the final result of the game, or Sorenson's stat line, the shot that everyone will remember was the remarkable one-hander to cap the first half. After all, it's not every day you get a full-court heave of perfection like Sorenson turned in.
