In probably the most exciting moment in little league basketball history, the Riley County Falcons were playing the Rock Creek Mustangs in the 8th Grade Basketball League Tournament’s third place game. The Falcons (white) were winning 26-25 with six seconds left: the Mustangs (black) were inbounding the ball for one last chance at a buzzer beater.

What happens next is one of the saddest things ever: a Mustang player beautifully drives to the hoop and attempts a buzzer beater lay up, only for the ball to get stuck on the rim. It is ruled a missed shot and since time expired, the Falcons won the game.

The look on the losing team’s faces is heart-wrenching.
