Watch the Evanston Freshman's Buzzer-Beater Named ESPN's Top Play of the Day

Friday was a night Blake Peters will never forget.

That’s because the Evanston Township High School freshman sank an unbelievable buzzer-beater to lift his team to victory.

Peters grabbed the rebound from a missed free throw shot and with less than three seconds left, heaved the ball one-handed nearly the entire length of the court.

That last-ditch effort somehow found the net, launching the Wildkits to a 45-44 win over Maine South High School.

Fans naturally stormed the court, and the shot earned the distinction of being the number 1 play on ESPN SportsCenter’s Top 10 plays of the day.
