You like buzzer-beaters. Of course you do. Last night, in a rivalry game between St. Charles East and St. Charles North, in, umm, St. Charles, Illinois, East came back from a 12 point deficit to tie the game at 47 with just over a minute remaining. The teams traded buckets and free throws over the next 60 seconds, until finally, with 3.3 seconds on the clock, North needed to inbound the ball and get a shot up for a chance to win:

That’s East guard Justin Hardy pulling up for the win, according to Jacob Bartelson, who covered the game for the Kane County Chronicle.

Afterward, Hardy told Bartelson all he remembered of the shot:

“It was in my hands. I didn’t know the time on the clock. I just figured I had to turn and shoot.”
