The Austin boys high school basketball team stayed unbeaten thanks to a highly improbable, buzzer-beating, full court shot in Northfield on Tuesday night.
With just 1.6 seconds remaining in the game, Austin trailed the Northfield Raiders by 56-54. And then, like something from out of an unrealistic sports movie, Junior Oman Oman from Austin rebounded a missed Northfield free throw, and unleashed an 80-foot prayer that found the bottom of the net just as the final horn sounded.
Austin won the game 57-56. And fortunately for us all, a cell phone camera of Oman's miracle bucket (and the ensuing bedlam) made it to YouTube.
The Austin Packers went to 4-0 with the bucket (they are now 5-0) and, apparently, are favored by the basketball gods.
