'Sup dawg, we heard you like high school buzzer beaters, so we put a high school buzzer beater in your NBA blog so you can buzz while you watch high school buzzer beaters while we NBA blog. — Xzibit
This past Friday, during an Ohio high school basketball game, Casey Weber of Dayton Christian High School buried a 90-footer as the third-quarter buzzer sounded in a 63-46 victory over Arcanum at the University of Dayton. Yes, you read that correctly: 90 feet! That's 85 feet farther than Erick Dampier's ever dreamed of!
Now, I know what you're thinking: big deal, right? Anyone can win the lottery once. Well, yes and no.
While Weber's heave was definitely a lucky prayer, in practice on Monday at Far Hills Community Church's gymnasium, with the cameras rolling, the 6-foot senior connected again from super deep ... on just his second shot attempt.
So, take a number Joe Johnson, the Weber-LeBron full-court challenge is officially on.
