Gary Harris Buzzer Beater
Gary Harris' buzzer beater lifted Hamilton Southeastern over North Central.

Is it just me or has there been an unusual amount of buzzer beaters over the last few weeks? There were a couple in the NBA last week with the Timberwolves and Grizzlies. George Mason shocked VCU with a buzzer beating 3-pointer on Valentines Day. There was even one from nearly full court. On Tuesday night, Gary Harris of Class 4A No. 1 Hamilton Southeastern continued the trend in a Sectional 8 first-round game of the Indiana State Playoffs against No. 3 North Central.

In the final 10 seconds, Harris did just about everything he could do to get his side the win. First, he knocked down two free throws to tie the game at 83. Then the Michigan State recruit made a great defensive play and forced a tie up to get the ball back for Hamilton Southeastern. Then, with 4.6 seconds left in the game, Harris got the inbound pass near half court, made a spin move and launched a 3-pointer.

In. Game over. Time to rush the court. The only thing Harris seemingly forgot to do was call the bank shot.

"I leaned after I shot it and thought it was going in. It felt good," Harris told Kyle Neddenriep of IndyStar.com.
