If you thought the lead changes, buzzer beaters and bad officiating of March Madness was limited to college basketball, think again. We’re a few days away from the best month of the year in hoops and these Maine high schools got the spirit going early with a ridiculous finish. Take a look.
The craziest 20.9 seconds in Maine HS basketball history.— James Corrigan (@RealCorrigan) February 25, 2023
Four lead changes. Two dramatic and 1 layups. And a shot that people will be talking about for a long time.

There were several clock malfunctions during the layups that were exchanged prior to the buzzer beater, so there’s no real way to tell exactly what counts as a bad call on the game’s final play. However, you can clearly the ball in the shooter’s hands as the backboard hits double zeroes. Given this was a regional final of the state basketball tournament, you can bet there will be a lot of upset fans.
