With Austin (Minnesota) High School trailing Northfield High School by two points, the Packers' Oman Oman knew he had to get a shot up after he rebounded a missed free throw.

That was made challenging by the fact that only 1.6 seconds remained on the clock.

Well, not only did Oman get a shot off, he managed to sink the game-winner from the other end of the court.

Oman grabbed the rebound after the Raiders missed their second consecutive free throw, and he let it fly. Here's a different angle (which also shows the reaction of both teams), via Twitter user @sylvia_knig:

Obviously Oman didn't have much time to try to get a great look. It was just catch and heave.

“It was just a reaction. I just got the ball, and I threw it up. Luckily it went in. It kind of surprised me,” Oman said, per Rocky Hulne of the Austin Daily Herald. “I was happy and everyone was charging at me. It was [a] good feeling.”

The shot shocked everyone as Austin pulled off a stunning 57-56 victory.
