Thrilling 3 Buzzer Beater, 4 OT Game Is the Best of Minnesota Basketball
The rest of March Madness is going to have a tough time keeping pace with this thriller.
Waseca and Marshall high schools squared off Thursday night in Saint Peter, Minn. in the Section 2AAA boys basketball championship in the craziest game you may ever see.
That's because Waseca emerged with a 103-100 win in quadruple overtime in a contest that featured three buzzer beaters.
The tight game went into overtime when Marshall, trailing by three, nailed a three-pointer that took a couple of fortuitous bounces before dropping in the net for the first buzzer beater.
Both teams battled through a first and a second overtime and Marshall looked like it had victory all sewed up in the third overtime when Waseca, down three after a made free throw, inbounded the ball and Nick Dufault miraculously sent the game to a fourth overtime with a nearly full-court heave.
Still not enough drama for you? The heart-stopping game had one more epic moment when Waseca's Cole Streich wrapped up the game in the fourth OT with -- what else? -- a three-pointer at the buzzer for the amazing 103-100 victory.
The season now continues for Waseca, who will move on to the state tournament at Minneapolis' Target Center.
