IL High Schooler Hits 70-Footer at Buzzer
If Denton Wallace of Lincoln-Way North High School in Frankfurt, IL, tried his game-winning shot from Friday’s game against Amos Alonzo Stagg High a hundred more times, he might not make it once.
With the score knotted at 63-all in the closing moments, Wallace caught an inbound pass just inside the 3-point arc on the Lincoln-Way side of the court. He let it fly from 70 feet away and miraculously it banked in, sending his teammates, coaches and home crowd into hysterics.
In addition to how incredible the shot itself was, we love how even the PA announcer for the game can’t contain himself. His shouts of delight can clearly be heard above everyone else’s in the gym.
Let’s hope this catches the attention of local colleges looking for a clutch shooter.
