Third-grader’s Unlikely Buzzer Beater

March 27, 2012 by staff 

Third-grader’s Unlikely Buzzer Beater, With state tournaments finishing across the country, great buzzer-beaters and dunks are all the rage. Yet none may be as terrific as the one you see below, from a third-grade basketball game in rural Oregon.

As first reported by the KOBI and KOTI NBC affiliates in Medford and Klamath Falls, Ore., Austin Worthen nailed a trey from just beyond midcourt during his team’s victory in an elementary school basketball tournament on Saturday.

While Worthen’s shot came from a fairly typical buzzer-beater distance, it wasn’t delivered in a traditional way at all, thanks to Worthen’s diminutive size. Rather, the third-grader put his entire body into his baseball-style heave, which then banked in through the net to close out the third quarter of his team’s 25-4 victory.
