Full-court lob gives Minnesota team the win as time expires
AUSTIN, Minn. (AP) — It was another Hail Mary pass to give the Packers the win. Only this time the winners are e a Minnesota boys high school basketball team, thanks to a full-court shot as time expired.
Players and fans erupted in jubilation as Austin came away with a 57-56 buzzer-beating win Tuesday over Northfield.
The Austin Daily Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1luahEb ) three seconds were left in the game when Northfield missed a free throw. Packers junior Oman Oman grabbed the rebound and flung the ball. To everyone’s surprise, it went through the net.
Austin head coach Kris Fadness says he’s never seen an ending like that in his 30 years of coaching. It reminded him of quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ Hail Mary pass last week for a Wisconsin Packers’ win against the Detroit Lions.
