The Virginia state basketball semifinals and finals are ongoing, and we may already have the highlight of the title round.

During John Marshall High School’s (Richmond, Va.) Virginia Class 3 state semifinal against Phoebus (Va.) High School, Marshall found itself chasing the game when it pulled away a steal near its own defensive perimeter.

Senior DeMarr McRae immediately popped out ahead on the break, ready for an outlet pass. He got the pass, somehow turned a dribble into a pitch perfect bounce assist, then threw down a monster slam.

It was a touchstone moment in Newport News, with McRae seemingly putting Marshall on path to a spot in the state title game.

Instead, it wasn’t to be. Phoebus pulled out the back-and-forth contest, in overtime, 74-71. The loss ended McRae’s high school career.

At least he went out with a bang.
