Player scores 7 points in 30 seconds to lift Maryland school to comeback victory

By

Jamar Wilson of Northwest High in Germantown, Md., had a fantastic finish to his team’s come-from-behind victory Friday night.

Wilson scored seven points in 30 seconds. Seven.

According to the Washington Post, the Jaguars were down by five to Clarksburg when Wilson went to the line and hit two free throws.

Northwest fouled on the next possession to get the ball back and the Clarksburg player missed both free throws.

Wilson hit a three-point at the other end to tie the score.

Clarksburg inbounded the ball but then attempted a cross-court pass to what looked like an open teammate. Wilson made the steal, drove toward the basket and lifted a shot up as the buzzer sounded. The ball dropped through, the student section stormed the court and Northwest had an improbable 69-67 victory.

“I don’t know if there’s another athlete on the floor that gets that ball,” Northwest coach Rob Smith said.
