So Josh Adams is pretty much the King of Everything on the Chapparal High (Colorado) campus right now, after his heroics gave his team the Colorado 5A state basketball title recently. After Arapahoe High had tied the game at 67 with 10 seconds left, Chapparal’s Cory Calvert took a 3-pointer that went off the back rim. But Adams had knifed in past a defender, and converted on an off-balance, left-handed tip-in at the buzzer, giving his team the win. The crowd, as they say, went wild.


Denver Post:

“The play was for Cory (Calvert, his teammate and good friend) to take the last shot because he had been feeling it,” Adams said. “I’ll tell you what, I put everything into that jump.”

Adams will play at the University of Wyoming next season.
