It happened in Corydon, Iowa on Saturday, at the tipoff of the Pride of Iowa Conference senior high school all star basketball game. Players from one team thought it would be fun to choreograph their first play (if they won the tip), and hilarity ensued. Plus two points.

Pleasantville’s Collin Thomas snapped the ball to Wayne of Corydon’s Bryce Carpenter who took several dribbles before tossing up an alley-opp to Hunter Van Haalen of Pleasantville.

“We kind of thought of it five minutes before the game started and we decided to do it,” Carpenter said Monday.

Carpenter said the video, shot by Martensdale-St. Mary’s J.D. Nielsen’s (the left guard) mom, has been an instant hit.

Carpenter and his teammates tossed the video on YouTube where as of Monday morning it had generated over 246,000 hits.

“YouTube made it pretty big,” Carpenter said. “I googled it and it was pretty much everywhere.”

Dunker = Hunter Van Haalen, Pleasantville
