WATCH: Miracle shot saves Washington HS team's playoff hopes
These shots will never not be awesome, but this one just so happened to come in the middle of the Washington high school playoffs.

One Washington high school basketball team should consider itself extremely fortunate after a miracle last-second shot kept their playoff hopes alive on Tuesday night.
Facing rival Camas in a district playoff game, Evergreen (Wash.) was down 63-61 with a few seconds remaining in regulation. The Plainsmen were targeting their 6-foot-7 Division 1 prospect Robert Franks Jr. (not a bad idea under these circumstances). Franks tries to grab hold of the ball near the opposing free throw line, but he couldn’t stop fumbling it. Finally, he just heaved it over his shoulder … swish.
Evergreen would go on to win the game 74-68 in overtime.
