3rd Grader Hits No-Look, Backwards, Buzzer-Beating 3-Pointer (Video)

Backwards Buzzer-Beating 3-Pointer - Tyrik Petway

A no-look, backwards, buzzer-beating 3-pointer is impressive, no matter who hits it.  But it’s especially impressive when a third-grader hits it—which is what happened during the AAA County Championship Game in Maryland.

With time winding down in the first half, young Tyrik Petway set up to take the last shot of the frame.  It seemed like your average basketball play, until he did this:

Crazy, isn’t it?  I mean, who sets up for a final shot by turning their back to the basket and heaving up a no-look prayer from well beyond the three-point arc?

Perhaps the only thing crazier than this shot is the fact that someone has actually ranked the nation’s third-grade basketball players, and Tyrik Petway is ranked second on that list.
