Josh Clanton of Indiana’s Central Christian Academy hit one of the most amazing shots that you will ever see. Down 62-61 with less than a second left against Arlington High School, Central Christian Academy needed a miracle to advance past the first round of the state playoffs. And thanks to Clanton, that’s exactly what they got.
Watch the senior grab a rebound off of a missed free throw and bury a full-court heave at the buzzer.
That’s gotta be the longest buzzer-beater of all-time. The level of difficulty on that is downright absurd, as it’s already virtually impossible to hit a shot from that far away in an empty gym. You add the 0.5 second time restraint and the win-or-go home stakes into the mix, and that’s how to end up being a legend at your school. If I was running things at Central Christian Academy, I’d already be in the process of renaming their gym to The Josh Clanton Colosseum.
