Sick Shot: High Schooler Hits Backwards Half Courter
Twin Valley high school (Ohio) basketball player Austin Groff became an instant internet legend this week, after video surfaced of him hitting a buzzer-beating backwards half courter in a recent game. With time winding down and his back to basket as he got pressured near half court, Groff heaved up the prayer that went swish like a cigarillo.
Unfortunately for Groff, the play came at the end of the 1st quarter and didn’t really impact the game, but a few years from now, nobody will remember anyways so he will surely embelish the magnitude of the shot. It’s only right.
