Sophomore Dakota Grassi was a hero this weekend with a half court shot that not only went in - but won the game!

 

Let's set the stage. The Oxford Hills Comprehensive Vikings have had a tough basketball season. In previous games, they've been beaten by the Edward Little Red Eddies. But this game ended differently. It was tied up 39-39. The final seconds were ticking away when the Vikings get the rebound. They get it to Dakota Grassi...and to quote his father,

some how he sank that half court shot. I wish the video wouldn’t have cut off so soon, because the whole bench clears, picks him up, carries him to the far side of the gym to the student section. Such a special moment, not one I or he will forget any time soon.

 

Here's the video and it does get cut off...but you can clearly see that half court shot go right in!

 

What a shot! At the buzzer and for the win. Congrats Dakota and the whole Viking team!
