Yes, it's that time again folks. The time to run around in circles and wish the year's final snow away? No. Well, yes, it is time for that, too. But more importantly, it's time for the week's best viral video highlights, with a heavy dose of the best plays from the best prep hoops stars in the country. After all, the McDonald's All-American game only comes once a year. Everyone saw the game, so what didn't they see? These clips, among others.
• Marshall Plumlee, Christ School (N.C.): The latest Plumlee to head to play for Coach K's empire at Duke has serious hops, and he's not afraid to use them. He proved that after the Powerade Slam Fest, showing off these moves in a post-practice free-for-all. Throw down any of those in a game next fall and Plumlee will surely make an even quicker impact than his brothers before him.
• Kyle Wiltjer, Jesuit (Ore.): If Plumlee can throw it down, Wiltjer can make it rain. The future Kentucky freshman nailed 17 three pointers in the final round of the Powerade Jam Fest 3-point contest, walking away with the 3-point crown and plenty of bragging rights for next fall.
• Adonis Thomas, Memphis (Tenn.) Melrose: If we ever needed proof that great basketball players really do shoot from all over the court, along comes this clip of Memphis area starlet Adonis Thomas nailing a midcourt three in smooth stride at the end of an All-American practice session. If that wasn't impressive enough, well, we're betting he would have been happy to do it again, too.
• Some amazingly lucky player at some school somewhere: OK, so we don't have the slightest where this clip originates from. All we know is that the homestanding Spartans pulled out an incredibly improbably win on an incredibly improbable baseball shot from nearly 90 feet. And then, to top things off, the videographer nearly has an embolism celebrating the buzzer-beating victory. Terrific shots never sounded so good.
• Boys soccer goalie, Louisville (Kent.) Collegiate School: We're not sure who Louisville Collegiate School's goalie is, but he is flat out unbelievable. After intimidating an regional finals opponent into a miss off the post on the first penalty kick attempt, he then saved four consecutive shots to seal his school's advancement to the state tournament. If that isn't enough to justify a long look by any number of colleges, we don't know what is.
• Providence (Wash.) vs. North County (Wash.): A handful of plays from this highlight could all qualify as being worthy of mention, but it's hard not to single out the first dodge of the video, where an attackman jukes his defender completely out of the play, rolls inside him and proceeds to fake out the goalie for an easy drop-in goal. Like taking candy from a baby ...
• Alec someone, some Little League somewhere: This clip goes out to any Little League coaches out there. Want a vivid example of what happens when your players overthrow first base on a desperation attempt? Here it is, in glorious fashion: A grand slam bunt. Hard to beat that in terms of caustic proof of the need for conservative fielding, huh? The fact that the opposing coach even warned, "Watch the bunt," before the pitch, makes this clip all the more painful.
