Des Moines East senior Cameron Cramer had probably the biggest shot of his career Monday night at Fort Dodge in a Class 4A Substate 2 quarterfinal boys’ basketball game.
With about seven seconds remaining in the game and down 71-69, Cramer received the ball after the Dodgers made a pair of free throws. He dribbled up court, made a couple of moves to get past defenders — including a behind-the-back dazzler that created space just behind the 3-point line — and hit a shot with two guys in his face.
The Scarlets won 72-71 — upsetting Fort Dodge and closing its season at 13-9.

East’s bench went crazy following the basket, with coaches and teammates jumping in celebration and running toward Cramer.
He later got hold of a video clip of his huge game-winner, shared it from his Twitter account and said: “This is for the East side we got it done now on (to) the next game.”
