This might be a shot that even Steph Curry would have some sort of trouble making.

Oman Oman, a junior at Austin High School in Minnesota knocked down a shot for the ages. His team, down 56-54, was lined up while the opposing Northfield High School was shooting free throws.

After missing both free throws, Oman got the rebound, threw up the prayer (flat-footed!) that was answered, and everyone went wild. Packers win, 57-56!

That is undoubtedly one of the best ways to win a basketball game, and one of the worst ways to lose. Oman is certainly aware of that, knowing how lucky he and his team were to win such a tight game in which they had difficulty hitting shots.

“It was a tough game at the end,” Oman said to the Austin Daily Herald. “We definitely stole one from them.”

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. “I was happy and everyone was charging at me. It was good feeling.”

Austin head coach Kris Fadness said he hadn’t seen an ending like that in his 30 years of coaching, even comparing Oman’s shot to Aaron Rodgers’ recent Hail Mary game-winning touchdown.

“Honestly, it’s no different than Aaron Rodgers’ Hail Mary touchdown pass [against Detroit],” the coach said. “We sort of struggled all night as a team, and we were hanging around. We had a hard time scoring. I give our kids credit for battling and persevering to give us a chance. Luckily, a prayer was answered.”

A little luck goes a long way, and a win is a win. With that victory, the Austin High Packers improved to 4-0 on the season. But Oman and his teammates might not experience anything quite as exciting as that game-winner for the rest of the season.
