Indiana senior earns attention with buzzer beater, keeps it with incredible hairdo

Franko House hit an incredible shot on Senior Night, letting fly from behind the free throw line at the other end of the court. The basket was both remarkable – he threw the ball like a football and somehow got the shot off in 0.5 seconds – and important, as it stretched a 6-point lead to 9 points, leading Elkhart (Ind.) Concord Community High to a 52-38 Senior Night victory against Elkhart (Ind.) Westview High.

You can see the shot above, as the Ball State commit let’s fly with … wait a minute, what is up with House’s hair?

As highlighted by The Big Lead, that really is Franko House’s hair. Clearly, it’s the most unique ‘do in recent prep history. While Nerlens Noel’s flattop was an authentic throwback to the Kid 'N Play days, House’s hair is in a class all its own.

What could one even call House’s haircut? The mountain? His hair has three separate levels, like the Rockies or the Sierra Nevadas. Between the two lowest levels of House’s three-story hair condo he has a clean line shaved in, as if the barber were creating a hiking path between peaks.

A quick comb (no puns intended) through House’s Twitter feed makes it clear that he hasn’t always sported The Mountain, usually showcasing a ‘do that is closer to a traditional flat top.

Yet, when it counted, with a shot that drew attention from around Indiana, House had a hairdo that just didn’t quit, much like his last ditch attempt that capped a wild third quarter on a successful Senior Night.
