Kid sinks amazing halfcourt buzzer-beater

Basketball.jpg

This kid's eight or nine years of age tops and he nailed this shot during a basketball tournament in rural Oregon, from inside his half of the court. Take a bow Austin Worthen.

The third-grader put his entire body into his baseball-style hurl, which then banked in through the net to end the third quarter of his team's 25-4 victory.

It's the celebrations that make this video, with the coach acting like he'd hit the shot himself. Why not coach, take a bow yourself...
