VIDEO: Ohio basketball team hits long-distance buzzer beater in district title game

Senior Justin Bofenkamp of John F. Kennedy Catholic (Warren, Ohio) now has firsthand knowledge of the thrill of a buzzer beater. His 3-pointer ended the first half as JFK went on to beat defending Division IV Ohio state champions Cornerstone Christian (Willoughby, Ohio) by a 75-72 score in the district championship Friday night.

Watch above as Bofenkamp does some nifty dribbling to get enough space to get a shot off. Those were the last three of Bofenkamp’s 20 points, while classmate Nate Woods had the same tally.

Cornerstone got a big game from junior Michael Bothwell, who finished with 41 points. But it wasn’t big enough, as Bofenkamp’s game-winner will be talked about for years to come.

JFK advances to face McDonald next Tuesday in the regional semifinals at the Canton Fieldhouse.
