Evanston Township High School (Chicago suburb) came away with a victory over Maine South in seemingly impossible fashion.

Maine South was at the free throw line with a 45-44 lead with 2.6 seconds left, but had their free throw shot rim out. Evanston Township freshman Blake Peters got the ball and chucked it from in front of the opposing free throw line… swish.

And this may be the better angle, but you’re also left feeling terrible for the kid that missed the free throw. He can’t even turn around to look at the shot, and crumbles to the ground as he hears the crowd roar.

It’s hard to imagine we’ll see a more incredible shot — at least to win a game — in basketball this year.

UPDATE: Welp, another 3/4-court shot from the same night. This time in Indiana high school basketball, where Center Grove’s Trayce Jackson-Davis nailed the game-winner vs Lawrence North. And he’s the son of former NBA All-Star Dale Davis.
