Shot Of The Year? It Has To At Least Be In The Discussion...

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Have you ever seen a shot like this?

We’re willing to bet that you haven’t.

Marvey’o Otey, a high-school basketball player from Virginia, hit a miraculous one-handed prayer behind his back just before the ball went out of bounds on Tuesday night.

Otey didn’t see the ball go into the hoop, as his momentum carried him through an open door and out of the gym.

According to the New York Daily News, Otey finished with 30 points. But his performance wasn’t enough, as the newspaper reported that his William Byrd High School Terriers fell to the Cave Spring High School Knights by 10 points. 

We’re willing to bet that you can’t help but watch this video over and over and over again.
