Half Court Shot

Let me set the scene on this buzzer beater: Kealakehe (Hawaii) high school boy’s basketball team was up by the score of 42-39 on Wednesday night against Hawaii Prep.

With only three seconds remaining, Hawaii Prep was looking for a miracle to tie the score and send the game into an overtime period.

That’s when senior guard Jovan Crnic took the inbounds pass from half-court and heaved up a prayer over two Kealakehe defenders which ended up going straight through the hoop:

Hawaii Prep would win the game by the score of 55-54 in double overtime and Crnic had a game-high 28 points.
