WATCH: Champlin Park Hits Miracle BUZZER BEATER To Advance In MN State High School Tournament

I grew up going the Minnesota State High School State Basketball tournament every year with my dad and friends. In 2004 my dreams came true and I got to play in the tourney even starting in the state championship basketball game for the Burnsville Blaze. I know, oh good for me, but we lost to Spencer Tollackson and the Chaska Hawks, so yeah. That loss stung, for a long time, but I got over it. The next year, I convinced my family to leave the 4A championship game early and beat traffic since Hopkins was gonna lose...Blake Hoffarber hit the butt shot and I'll never live it down at my house.

Needless to say, my history with the state tourney runs deep.

Another unforgettable moment occurred earlier today when the #1 seeded and undefeated Champlin Park Rebels squared off against those Chaska Hawks. With the game tied 50-50, MN player of the year McKinley Wright had the ball at the top of the key. Dribbling in with 6 seconds left on the clock, Wright pulls up to hit the jumper but misses throwing a mad scramble onto the court for the rebound. The ball was ultimately punched out near the three point line where another Champlin player grabs it and this happens...

REMINDER, fast forward to the 1:15 mark of the video...
