That Kid's Got Game: Senior hits buzzer beater against rival to win final high school game

Playing in his final regular season high school basketball game against his school’s biggest rival, a West Virginia teen hit the biggest shot of his life.

Shawn Moran, point guard for the Lewis County Minutemen, caught the ball off the inbound with seconds left and his team trailing 47-45. He launched one as he was fading to his left behind the three-point line in the far corner. And he nailed it. On senior night.

Moran finished the game against Buckhannon-Upshur High School with an impressive 22 points, eight rebounds, four assists and two steals. The stat line he produced in his final regular season game put him into the “300-point club,” which recognizes players who score more than 300 points, Moran said. 

The teen said his dream is to play basketball in college and hopes to land at West Virginia Wesleyan College.
