Oman Oman hits full court buzzer beater for the win!

8 Dec

The Packers were down 2 with 1.6 seconds left on the clock.  Oman grabbed the rebound off the missed free throw and threw it the length of the court as time expired to give Austin a 56-55 win.  The Packer fans rushed the court as the crowd erupted!  Northfield’s fans stood in disbelief as the team mobbed Oman!  The win moves Austin to 4-0 on the year.  Austin will have another big test on Friday when Rochester John Marshal comes to town.Click here to watch the Video on Youtube!

The Packers next game is Friday at home vs. John Marshall.

*Update Overnight the video has been spreading around the internet.

**Update #2 Oman has gone Viral.  The video of Oman’s shot is spreading like wild fire across the internet.  I have been getting requests from news outlets around the country to use the video.  The Basketball twitter page has been re tweeted and referenced thousands of times.  The video is on numerous news websites and popular sports websites!  The associated press requested permission to post the video, and now it is showing up on websites and news stations across the country.

***Update #3 I cant’ keep up with the number of websites and TV stations that have featured the clip.  Oman has officially taken over the internet.

    To coin a Yogism, “It’s never over til it’s over.” Congrats to Austin.
