Last week it was revealed that Jonathan Nicola, a 6-foot-9 junior tearing it up for Catholic Central High School in Windsor, Ontario, was not indeed a 17-year-old kid dunking on a bunch of fellow teens, but instead a 29-year-old man dunking on a bunch of unsuspecting teens. Nicola told authorities it was an honest…
The Catholic Central High School boys basketball team, located in Windsor, Ontario, has a pretty good player in Jonathan Nicola. The 6-foot-9 center is so good that his coach put together the workout video above, because, as he told the Windsor Star last year, Nicola had a shot at going pro. That dream is probably…
Scary news out of Indiana this afternoon, as the Griffith Panthers’ boys basketball team was on their way to the state semifinal game against Marion, when their bus flipped over near DeMotte.
Garfield Heights took down St. Ignatius last night in some hot Cleveland Regional Final action to head to the state semifinals. The Bulldogs beat the Wildcats (this was one of probably like 3,000 Bulldogs-Wildcats meetings this weekend) 70-69 in two overtimes, and every single quarter ended with someone beating the…
Catholic Memorial School took on Newton North High School in basketball up in a suburb of Boston last night. Catholic Memorial won the game 77-73 to head to the EMass final, but not after some good old fashioned anti-Semitism from its fans. Fans of the Catholic school responded to “Sausage fest!” chants from Newton…
Prepare for the fourth of the approximately one million buzzer-beaters that will happen this weekend.
‘Tis the season for buzzer-beaters.

The craziest basketball game of the year just finished in Saint Peter, Minnesota. Waseca High School and Marshall High School faced-off this evening for the Minnesota Section 2AAA boys basketball championship, with the winner advancing to the state tournament.
You know that thing where a team recovers possession with time running out and thinks it has the game won, so a player hurls the ball up into the air in celebration even before the buzzer sounds? The video above is the cautionary tale: make sure that ball doesn’t come down with time left.
The rivalry between two Idaho high schools required police to step in when Madison High School students shoved Highland High School’s mascot to the floor at a boys basketball game in Rexburg Tuesday night.
Reader Joe sent this along with the note (warning?), “Yes, this is how we sound.” If you are also of the mind that thick Wisconsin twang is charming, well, strap in for the good shit.
Melvin Lee of Wisconsin’s Riverside University High School threw down one of the best dunks I’ve ever seen someone under six feet throw down the other day. Lee was going up into the trees from only a few steps in front of the free throw line, but he jammed it home with authority.
If there’s one thing you can always rely on high school sports to provide, it’s hilarious box scores. Today’s gift comes to us from a girls basketball game in Cleveland, Ohio, between Gilmour High and Northeast Ohio College Prep.
Four parents of Lincoln High School (Portland, Ore.) basketball players have filed a complaint against varsity coach Pat Adelman, alleging that Adelman called white players racists during a halftime tongue-lashing, and demeaned two black players by making their teammates touch them, according to Willamette Week.
Pennsylvania boys hoops here, with Wilmington hitting what appears to be a winner with two seconds left on the clock to go up one point, leading the home crowd to celebrate—until Jacob Reimold’s line drive the length of the court gives the 68-66 win to Reynolds.
Look at this shot from Male High School’s Alex Cook to beat St. Xavier.
We have no context for this, but it appears to be from Saturday’s Indiana high school JV game between Cascade and Speedway. Good buzzer-beater!
