High School Basketball Game Sent to Overtime After Ball Gets Stuck on Rim

Kyle NewportFeatured ColumnistJanuary 14, 2014

There is no stranger way for a basketball game to be sent to overtime than what happened in a Washington high school game over the weekend.

Tied at 65 in the final seconds of regulation, Grandview had a chance to knock off Prosser in regulation. The Greyhounds came up with a steal, pushed the ball up the court and had a good look at a layup.

Then it happened.

The ball sat still on the back of the rim as time expired, sending the game to overtime.

Oddly enough, the game came down to a layup once again. Grandview's Isaiah Gonzalez beat the buzzer with a layup in overtime to give his team a 72-70 victory, via the Yakima Herald-Republic.

The Greyhounds (10-0) suffered a tough break at the end of regulation, but they were able to come away with the victory in the end.


Hat tip to Busted Coverage's Joe Kinsey for the find.
