Alabama Basketball Video: Watch Trevor Releford Hit Game-Winning Half-Court Shot

Brian MaziqueCorrespondent IIIMarch 9, 2013

You may never see a more amazing buzzer-beater to win a game—especially not on the college or professional level.

Alabama Crimson Tide junior guard Trevor Releford's half-court heave just became the latest "did you see that" play in sports.

In a tied game, Georgia freshman Charles Mann lost the ball on a drive to the basket with two seconds remaining. The ball popped in the air and into the hands of Alabama's Rodney Cooper, who quickly tossed the ball to Releford.

After taking about three dribbles, Releford launched the 50-foot bomb that splashed through the net and gave the Tide an exciting 61-58 win.

The only thing that would have made it better is if his team were trailing when he nailed the prayer.

It was the fourth three-pointer Releford made in the game, but the other three obviously weren't as big, and not nearly as deep.

He finished with 19 points as the Tide grabbed their 20th victory of the season, and they improved to 12-6 in the SEC.

This was just the latest setback in a season filled with disappointment for Georgia. The Bulldogs battled back from a 14-point halftime deficit to be in position to win the game, but the turnover and subsequent miracle shot sent their dreams down in flames. The loss dropped them to 15-16 and 9-9 in the SEC.

Something tells me Trevor Releford's cell phone will be blowing up all night. His shot is sure to be run countless times on the Internet and television.
