Evidently teenagers in California really love sushi. Who knew? How else can you explain the reaction following the made mid-court shot at halftime of a Granite Bay’s basketball game against Woodcreek.
Given the chance to win free sushi for a full year from local Mikuni Japanese Restaurant & Sushi Bar, Granite Bay junior Adam Kahan walked to halfcourt and immediately implored his schoolmates to give more vocal support. Perhaps that made the difference, as Kahan took one large running step and launched a bomb that sailed perfectly through the air and directly through the net.
The reaction that followed was the kind of scene you’d expect if such a made shot was worth $1 million or the like. The entire Granite Bay student section poured on to the court to celebrate with Kahan.
Unfortunately for Granite Bay, Kahan’s shot was the lingering positive from the matchup, with Woodcreek ekeing out a 58-54 victory. Want to know more about the game? Ask Kahan. You can probably find him at Mikuni. He might even sneak you some free sushi.
