    High School Hoops Player Sinks 80-Foot Game-Winning Buzzer Beater (Video)

    We saw a bunch of really great buzzer-beaters in 2013. The 55-footer that won the New York State Class AA high school boys championship back in March was pretty insane. The no-look backwards over-the-head buzzer beater from the Spanish pro league was pretty amazing, too. However, the one you are about to see is, without […]

And over the years, we’ve seen just about every kind of buzzer-beater imaginable—the buzzer-beating layup, the buzzer-beating fade-away, the buzzer-beating backwards over-the-head two-hander, and of course the buzzer-beating half-court shot.

    Ever since the arrival of the alley-oop, basketball players everywhere have continued to leave crowds in awe with their own renditions of this remarkably dazzling play.  Whether it is a back-board shattering alley-oop, the self-alley-oop, or an alley-oop over a 7’6″ monster, it is a play that never ceases to amaze us.  Heck, even hockey […]
