It wasn’t the best shot of the basketball season, but it may very well be the most unique.

During a game against fellow New Jersey squad Hamilton on Tuesday, Steinert High’s Lynzie Morgan fired up a shot in the lane and saw her ball soar higher than she anticipated. In fact, it went so high that it became stuck on the top of the backboard … until it suddenly wasn’t.

When it did come down, the ball slipped right through the hoop for the most unique “off the glass” bucket that you’ll ever see.

“I personally looked toward the official and he made no motion to wave it off,” Steinert coach Kristin Johnson told MaxPreps, which also reported on the magical basket. “The new rule this year includes the top of the backboard as in bounds. There is a decent gap between the top of our backboard and our apparatus. As long as it didn’t hit that it was still in bounds and found its way into the basket. … I bet she could try that 600 more times and it would never go in.”

We’ll bet you’re right, Coach Johnson. All the more reason to celebrate the time that Morgan’s shot did fall through.
