WATCH: Kid drains full-court buzzer-beater, hits shot again for TV
Easton Gamoke, a 13-year-old from Winona, Minnesota, won a tournament game with an improbable full-court heave. He did it again once a TV station showed up.
Thirteen-year-old Easton Gamoke hit a full-court, buzzer-beating shot of a lifetime to vault his Winona (Minn.) YMCA Runnin’ Rebels to victory over the weekend. And then he did it again – on his first try – once a news station showed up to have him re-enact the shot.
Gamoke and his YMCA team were taking part in a tournament in Holmen, Wis., over the weekend and the Rebels appeared headed to overtime. Then, with just seconds left, Gamoke chucked (and nailed) an improbable one-handed shot from inside the other team’s three-point arc. (The videographer's commentary is hilarious, by the way).
Then KMSP-TV in Minnesota showed up once word got out of his unbelievable shot. And the 13-year-old (with an awesome name) did it again.
