Oman Oman is a junior on the Austin High School basketball team in Minnesota and regardless of where he goes from here in the sport, he will never hit a more impressive shot than he did Tuesday night.
His full-court buzzer-beater left everyone in the gym at Northfield High school stunned. Those cheering for Oman and his teammates erupted in celebration. Those pulling for Northfield almost couldn't believe what they just saw.
Oman's shot won the game 57-56 for the Packers and kept them undefeated at 4-0. Oman finished with five points and a story he'll be telling for the rest of his life.
“It was just a reaction. I just got the ball, and I threw it up. Luckily it went in. It kind of surprised me,” Oman told the Austin Daily Herald. “I was happy and everyone was charging at me. It was good feeling.”
Here is a look at the shot from the opposite side of the court. Have to feel for those Northfield players. What a tough way to lose a game.
