It was a trick shot that Dude Perfect would have been proud of, and it happened in a real basketball game.
With less than a second left on the game clock, Alameda’s St. Joseph Notre Dame High School forward Temidayo Yussuf heaved the ball an estimated 80 feet to send the game into overtime. Everyone in the gym went berserk upon realizing what happened.
The special moment was short lived, however, as El Cerrito High School ended up winning the game in overtime.
“That’s the beauty of the game — in one second you’re happy and in the next second, you’re sad,” St. Joseph’s coach Don Lippi said. “To have that emotional roller coaster is hard to deal with sometimes.”
In the end, the 80-foot game-tying shot will be a lifelong memory for 17-year-old Yussuf and his teammates, and they’ll surely soon forget the final score.
