You may never see a crazier game than the one between Waseca and Marshall in Minnesota high school basketball.
According to KEYC in Makato, the game was back and forth for most of regulation. The score was 29-27 at the half. What they didn’t know at that point was that the game would go four overtime, there would be three buzzer-beaters, and the two teams would go on to score 177 points after halftime.
All of this and there was ticket to the state tournament on the line.
The craziness started at the end of regulation. After Waseca missed a free throw that would have sealed the win, Marshall hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer that barely stayed on the rim and fell in, sending the game to overtime No. 1.
Here is the same shot from what appears to be the student area.
But the two teams were just getting started.
Fast-forward to the end of the third overtime. After Marshall scored on a layup and got fouled, they hit the free throw to go up three with just two seconds to go. Waseca must now inbound the ball under their own basket and go the full length of the court.
No problem. A nearly full-court shot at the buzzer from Nick Dufault sent the game to a fourth overtime. He had 43 points in the game.
The best part of that replay is the Marshall player standing under the basket. Before the ball even goes through the basket he seems to know it is going in.
You would think they won the state championship. In reality the game is still not over. One more overtime to go.
With the game tied at the end of the fourth overtime, we’ve got one more buzzer-beater, because of course we do.
Waseca moved the ball up to the top of the key and with the chill of a Stephen Curry, Cole Streich pulled up and drained a game-winning three-pointer for the win.
….then this buzzer-beater in the FOURTH OVERTIME… gave Waseca a 103-100 win.
One more angle.
Wow, just wow.
With the win, Waseca earned a berth in the state tournament.
