Lexi Isebrand pulls off an insane shot in an Iowa basketball game

Lexi Isebrand pulled off one of the best plays of the week on Friday night, a combination of agility and awareness to make a spectacular basket.

A guard for Forest City (Forest City, Iowa), Isebrand’s circus shot came in a 70-35 win over West Hancock (Britt, Iowa). With the win, Forest City improves to 15-4 and has sole possession of first place in the North Iowa Conference.

Now, on to the play. This is all sorts of fun from Isebrand.

On a fast break and dribbling to her left, Isebrand seemed to draw some light contact (no foul was called). With her back turned and falling backward, Isebrand put up a two-handed, looping shot that fell in with a perfect swish.

Quite the play (and awareness) from the sophomore guard):


Isebrand also plays volleyball for Forest City.

Was it a real circus shot? Based on the incredible rarity and difficulty of it for sure, there is an aspect of it being a circus shot.

But this was a good bit of awareness from the sophomore guard rather than a trick play. Circus shot? Maybe simply a smart shot.
