This isn’t necessarily the first time we’ve come across these kind of heroics, but they’re special nonetheless. In a game between Nebraska school Wayne and North Dakota’s Dakota Valley, Wayne star Ben Hoskins hit not one, but two buzzer beaters to eventually win the game.
You can see video of both the clutch shots above, where it will become clear that the second was far more miraculous. While Hoskins knotted the game at 64 at the conclusion of regulation with a long three-pointer from the top of key, his overtime shot required significantly more panache.
First, Hoskins stole an inbounds pass with 0.6 seconds remaining that would have salted away the game for Dakota Valley. Instead, what can only be described as a cavalier deep ball went right to Hoskins, who took one step and launched a shot from behind midcourt.
The result? Nothing but net, and a 76-75 victory for Wayne.
The two threes were part of Hoskins’ game-high 28-point outburst, with plenty of his other points essential for Wayne overcoming an 11-point halftime deficit. Needless to say, the six points captured in the video above were the most exciting.
