The High School Buzzer Beater Epidemic Continues Unabated

I'm not sure what's in the water high school kids are drinking these days, but whatever it is, it seems to be helping them hit insane buzzer beating shots with frightening regularity. Normally, an 80-foot buzzer beater is something you see maybe once a year, now it's become a little more than your regular afternoon video clip. Here are two of the more recent crazy buzzer beaters.

First up is this regional final between Wisconsin Dells and River Valley, and with scored tied at 56, Dells senior Jade Royston heaved a desperate half court prayer just moments after he missed two free throws that could have sealed the game. Even more dramatic, his team had already blown a 10-point fourth quarter lead, had one player injured, another fouled out and no time outs left. Let's go to the tape.

Next up is Casey Weber of Dayton Christian High School, who nailed a 90 foot 3-pointer buzzer beater at the end of the third quarter of a 63-46 victory over

Even crazier, Weber repeated the feat for a TV news station several days later to prove it wasn't a fluke.

And as I said, there have been plenty of other insane high school buzzer beaters this year. Here's the crazy 1/2 second left backwards 3-point flip shot by Donte Foster.

And then there's this one by Teddy Guzek, who hit an 80-foot bomb while falling out of bounds with a "hell yeah I hit these all the time" kind of attitude. It came right before halftime of a less than epic 26-23 JV basketball game.

Like I said, I don't know what's going in high schools these days, but it's numbing me to the awesomeness of buzzerbeaters. Wake me when someone hits a game winning shot from the rafters with his eyes closed while balancing on one hand upside down.

I love the second video where the guy taking the video waits 5 seconds after the shot goes in and says "he made it".... it's like; no he didnt, everyone just started celebrating and yelling because they love when the buzzer goes off....here's your sign.

That last shot was amazing.  The way he just flung the ball as hard as he could and it goes in.

March Madness runs just as wild and crazy in high school basketball as it does the college game.  All these highlights do is further make me wish that the NCAA tournament started this weekend
