HS hoops overtime buzzer-beater defies all odds

Wayne High (Neb.) was down two with 0.6 left on the clock and didn’t have the ball.

One second later, they were celebrating a one-point win over Dakota Valley on Friday.

Wait, what?

Leading 75-73, the Dakota Valley player inbounding the ball decided to throw it far down the court to avoid letting Wayne get any kind of look at the basket. Seems like a sound enough strategy.

But Wayne’s Ben Hoskins — who earlier hit a buzzer-beating 3-pointer to tie the game and force overtime — intercepted the pass well behind half-court and launched a shot that swished through.

Watch both of Hoskins’ plays below:
