You think high school basketball is just like all other types of basketball? Hahahahaha no you've never been more wrong.
Take the Ohio championship game. Garfield Heights beat St. Ignatius, 70-69, in double overtime in the Division I regional final, and ALL FOUR QUARTERS ended with a buzzer beater. High school basketball is actually deranged.
Great start. This is what we wanted. The shooter, Ryan Berger, had missed the last game with a sprained ankle but played through it anyway.
This is really tough shot from Marreon Jackson, even if it's the only one inside the arc.
You can't make this up. Another Ryan Berger 3, this one from Superior, after Marreon Jackson 3. pic.twitter.com/x6wPazBCQr— Matt Goul (@mgoul) March 13, 2016
These are the same two kids, first Jackson with a three then Berger AGAIN from beyond half court. Never play this kid in HORSE.
One more! This three sent the game to overtime, which still wasn't enough to determine a winner. Somehow, neither the first nor second extra periods had buzzer beaters, but you know what? This has satisfied my buzzer beater cravings. I'm good. March Madness is right around the corner, so let's not overdo it. There's more coming.
