High school basketball buzzer beaters are the holiday gift (or GIF, in some cases) that keeps on giving. Whether they come off a layup or a fullcourt shot, there is such a time-honored majesty to the moment.
Today we give you Blake Pittser from Miami Trace (Washington Court House, Ohio). Pittser scored eight of his 20 points in the fourth quarter as Miami Trace came back from an eight-point deficit to earn the 62-59 win again Chillicothe.
The final three of those 20, as you see above, might be played on a loop in certain Washington Court House households for days and weeks to come. After a Miami Trace player gets the steal, he quickly sends the ball up-court to Pittser. While not quite a halfcourt shot, it’s definitely not your run-of-the-mill 3-pointer, either. The desperation heave over the halfcourt line went in, and provided that frenzy that can only happen in a basketball gym at such a moment.
With this shot, Pittser played Santa Claus. We all appreciate the latest gift in the form of a game-clinching shot.
