VIDEO: South Carolina 7th-grader drills 70-foot buzzer beater, everyone goes bananas

Somebody’s excited.

Aynor (S.C.) seventh-grader Noah Jones drilled an absolutely wild buzzer beater at the end of the half, sending who we can only assume to be the boy’s mother into absolute hysteria.

I’d like to imagine the Aynor coach drawing up this play during a timeout: “Now, here’s what we’re gonna do. We’re gonna pass it to Noah, and when you get the ball, Noah, I want you to throw it like a baseball 70 feet into the basket, OK? Sound like a plan? Let’s do this. Break on three.”

However they drew it up, Jones executed it to perfection. “It wasn’t a game-winning shot,” Noah’s father Billy Jones said in the YouTube description, “but a great moment for him and the school.”
