There are buzzer beaters, and then there are buzzer beaters. This is one of the most impressive game-winners I’ve seen in a long time. Brian Tyson of Olympic (Wash.) High School landed a 65-foot bomb to lift his team to a one-point victory on Wednesday night.
It’s a shot you have to see to believe. With his team trailing Kingston High School 56-54 with 2.7 seconds left in the game, Tyson took the inbounds pass from his teammate, dribbled twice, and heaved a three-quarter court shot to beat the buzzer and the Buccaneers, 57-56. Check this out!
Tyson’s game-winning buzzer beater left the Kingston players and fans stunned. They were left with nothing to do except stare in amazement as Tyson was mobbed by his teammates on the floor. It’s the ultimate example of “the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat”.
I captured an impressive three-quarter court buzzer beater last season, but it didn’t win the game. I was shooting a high school basketball game in Spokane when University High School star Brett Bailey (he’s heading to the University of San Diego next year) splashed home a long bomb at the end of the first quarter.
