Walk-offs are for baseball, not for basketball. Except when South Lakes High School (Reston, Va.) is in a tight game late, apparently.
With his South Lakes team on the ropes, junior multi-sport star Joseph Dagbe came through on the wing, popping open and somehow connecting on a fall-away, out-of-bounds three as time expired to land the Seahawks a 44-43 win against Osbourn High School (Osbourn, Va.).
And then, in perfect fashion, Dagbe got up, celebrated with his teammates by sprinting off, and straight off the court entirely.
True walk-off, regardless of sport.
As for South Lakes’ season, the narrow win landed the Seahawks a berth in the Northern Region playoff finals. Not a bad way to punch your team’s ticket, eh?
