This is not your every day, garden variety buzzer beater. It used so much more ingenuity to get the ball in the net.
As reported by the Beatrice Daily Sun, Bruning-Davenport-Shickley (BDS), a team from Nebraska, pulled out a wild 41-40 victory in the title game of the MUDECAS basketball tournament. Trailing Freeman 40-38 with just four seconds left, Riley Tegtmeier eventually connected on a buzzer beating three for the win.
The shot, an off-balance heave at the buzzer was nice. The lead-up was much prettier. First, Grant Norder launched an inbounds pass all the way to midcourt, where Chris Rohr elevated and caught the pass mid-air. Before Rohr even came down, he sent the ball on with a picture perfect touch pass to Tegtmeier, who was sprinting down the sideline.
The rest, as they say, is history.
“We usually practice it with two seconds left on the clock and we’re looking for a tip rather than a catch,” BDS Coach Fred Kluck told the Daily Sun. “With four seconds, we knew we could catch it and get a few dribbles in and maybe get all the way to the bucket. But I was glad he hit a three pointer and it ended it because (Freeman) is so good on defense, it would have been hard in overtime.”
