Insane High School Basketball Game Goes to 4th OT on Full-Court Buzzer-Beater (Videos)

insane high school basketball game waseca marshall minnesota section 2aaa

I’m not an expert of high school basketball. But I’ve seen my fair share of crazy games, and I really doubt I’ll get too many objections if I call Thursday night’s Minnesota Section 2AAA boys basketball game between Waseca High School and Marshall High School the most insane high school basketball game of all time. I mean, can you think of any other high school basketball games that went to four overtimes and featured three buzzer-beaters?

Things got exciting with about five seconds left in regulation. Up by three, Waseca was at the free throw line, where one shot would have iced the game. However, Waseca missed the free throw, and Marshall nailed a three-pointer to force overtime #1:

Two clutch free throws at the end of the first overtime sent the game to a second overtime. Then a steal and a bucket by Marshall late in the second overtime forced a third overtime. And it was at the end of the third overtime when things went from exciting to insane.

Up by two with one second left in the game, Marshall nailed a free throw to extend their lead to three, and that should have been it. With no more timeouts, there was no way Waseca was going to inbound the ball and nail a three pointer in one second. But then they did. And it wasn’t just any old three-pointer. A kid named Nick Dufault fired a shot from inside Waseca’s three point line just before time expired, and the motherf%#*ing thing went in, forcing overtime #4.

Take a look:

So how’d the fourth overtime end? With the score tied 100-100, Waseca hit one more buzzer-beater:

Final score: Waseca 103, Marshall 100.
