Boys' basketball: A half-court shot that set off a victory celebration [Video]

January 29, 2013 | 11:24 am

There isn't anything better in high school basketball than a shot at the buzzer that delivers victory. That's what happened last Friday night, when junior guard Noah Burke of Santa Barbara made a half-court shot in overtime as the buzzer sounded for a 56-55 victory over San Marcos, sending the visiting crowd into a frenzy.

It was a battle of the top two teams in the Channel League. Santa Barbara was at San Marcos. The shot leaves Santa Barbara at 17-4 and 6-3 in league. San Marcos is 15-6 and 6-2. And the fans are probably still celebrating.
