Metro high school player makes 70-foot buzzer beater shot

BONNER SPRINGS, KS (KCTV) -

A basketball player made that almost-impossible shot - a last second, 70-foot, buzzer beater that sent the game into overtime.

"Rebounded by Mikey Brown, two seconds, Brown at the buzzer, he did it, he did it. Mike Brown with the prayer at the buzzer, oh my goodness," the announcer yelled as the entire gymnasium erupted in cheers.

Mike Brown, a 17-year-old from Bonner Springs, KS, made the shot after a player on the other team missed a free throw. Brown got the ball and, with a monster heave, threw the ball 70 feet, made the shot and tied up the game.

"It was kind of hard to believe that it went in and that I took the shot from that far of a distance and it went through," said Brown, a junior at Maranatha Christian Academy.

Just for fun, when KCTV5 came to practice to talk with Brown, we had him try the shot again. And he made it again.
