lost the state championship last night on a nearly as miraculous shot, though no steal involved as time ran out.  heart breaker, but kudos to the victors of both games, and kudos to the wolverines for beating sparty in a thriller.

Disagree.  I froze it when the backboard light comes on and it appears that the ball is out. Yes, the TV clock is late, but I still think the ball is out of his hands when the backboard light goes on.

Reminds me of the 1986 Class B state championship where Chris Coles hit a 65 ft shot to win the game for Saginaw Buena Vista.

There was no three-pointer in Michigan high school basketball in 1986. What you saw was the ultimate 'long two'. (Also no shot clock -- so a pretty low score)

I was there for that game. Was Flint Beecher the opponent? Unless I'm confusing years, the Class A final that followed featured Detroit Northern's Derrick Coleman and Romulus's Terry Mills.

This is one of my all time favorites.  Sean Randolph  and the BV program was the truth.  Charlie Coles was a great coach (Coached Thunder Dan Majerle at CMU too).  We played in BV's league (White Pine Conference) and my team gave Mark Macon's epic team a run for its money (incidentally my team had an assistant coach by the name of T Crean).

That said, the fact that the NR team did not actually have the ball gives that one a leg up.

I would say the Celtics playoff game against the Pistons was comparable in "unlikely" victories, but it wasn't for the championship and the shots, while more of them, were not as difficult.

This one is ridiculous.

Yahoo! had a nice little write-up (LINK)

According to their article, that was a 55-footer from someone who was also the quarterback of the football team - Khalil Edney. His comment:

"I was just praying for it to go in," Edney told MSGVarsity, which was televising the game. "That's one of them last-second things you throw up, and it goes in."

That is the most unlikely, spectacular game-ender that I have seen, and congratulations to New Rochelle on winning the Class I-AA basketball championship for New York Section I (per the article, that was the ultimate result).

It looked like he didnt get the shot off in time. When I paused the video at 0.00, he still had contact with the ball. It was very close though. Try it and see what you think.

The guy who intercepted the inbounds pass, if he REALLY wanted to avoid being fouled, just has to chuck the ball straight up into air about 20 feet and the game is over before the ball even lands.  He's gotta feel terrible.
