Illinois 8th Grader Hit a Miracle Full Court Shot Game Winner
You'll rarely ever see someone hit a basketball shot like this and this one just happened to be a game winner by an Illinois 8th grader.
Coach Dakota Jones shared this incredible moment from a game from Milton Pope this week. The team was down 10 points at halftime, but managed to get within 1 with just seconds to go. After one of the other team's players missed a free throw, Cooper Thorson grabbed the rebound and then heaved a desperation shot. Watch what happened next.
Well done Cooper and the entire Miller Pope team. Amazing to come back from that big of a deficit and now stories to tell for a lifetime of how one big heave won a basketball game in November for an 8th grade team.
