RICHMOND, Va. It was an impossible shot, but Jordan Snipes sank it.
The Virginia high school basketball player hurled the ball 92 feet at the buzzer last night and it dropped cleanly through the hoop, giving his Guilford Quakers their 91-to-89 win over Randolph-Macon in overtime.
An opposing player had hit the first of two free throws to give Randolph-Macon an 89-to-88 lead. His coach told him to miss the second free throw.
Snipes got the rebound, turned and threw the ball 92 feet through the basket. He finished the game with 34 points -- including the three-point shot that's being shown on T-V around the country.

This is a wow type moment, a high school student making the shot of a lifetime. Why do I feature him on my site? His high school is where my brother went to college. Or somesuch.
