Minnesota High School Basketball

This was sent to me from my friend Jeremy. He was at the game and said the place exploded when this happened. I just wanted to share it with everyone. So let me set the stage...

Hopkins was playing Eastview and Hopkins got up by 16 in the first half. This kid Blake H., a sophomore at Hopkins was unconscious from 3-pts…I think he hit 5 tres in the first half. Anyways, Eastview battles back and actually takes the lead late in the fourth quarter. With about 8 seconds left in the game and Eastview up 3, the kid from Hopkins comes down and cashes a 3 from about a foot behind the NBA line…sends the game into OT.

In OT, they go back and forth and with about 2.5 seconds Eastview scores on a put back to put them up 2. Then it gets crazy…this shot sent it into a second OT where Hopkins eventually went on to win.

(watch this clip IT IS WORTH IT…it shows what happens from a couple of different angles…there is a commercial thing at the beginning, so be patient)

Just so you all know this was the #1 play on ESPN last night for plays of the week…it was crazy and the place was going nuts…I was going nuts…actually I was standing there trying to actually believe what just happened.

Here is another great thing…the kid who hit the shot…his girlfriend was sitting in front of us with a friend and her mom…after he hit the shot…the friend turns to his girlfriend and says “Don’t ever break up with him” hahahahahahah classic…
