Video of Ian Miller's championship-winning buzzer beater





Here's two videos from last night's thrill-a-minute United Faith vs. Raleigh Word of God N.C. Independent Schools' 1A championship. One features a slo-mo replay that seems to show the shot did not get off in time, however to the human eye, at real speed, it was hard to judge.



Sitting directly behind Miller when he let the shot go, I thought it came just as the buzzer sounded. There's no replay in high school because usually there are not TV cameras at games. This game will be shown on Time Warner Cable's on demand channels starting Tuesday afternoon. Whether you were at Charlotte Latin or not Saturday, it's worth a view.

There was a computer at the scorers table with a live feed and it was capable of reviewing the footage. 2 people at the table said Miller got it off with .02 on the clock.

Wow...that's pretty impressive, that they could eyeball to hundredths of a second off of a likely low-quality video feed.

Second video clearly shows a buzzer beater - per HS rules - quarter ends with buzzer, not 0:00 on the clock.

I was at half court on the first row. I could NOT look at the clock and watch the play so I chose to watch the play and use my ears for the buzzer. There is No way that shot beat the buzzer. I was 1 seat removed from the two guys doing the play-by-play and watched the replay several times showing 0.0 on the clock and the ball still in Miller's hands, so I don't know where anyone could possibly get .02 still on the clock. BTW, why in the world is there the definition of the buzzer vs the clock? Synchronize them and then you have a failsafe instead of a debate!!

It must be a very awkward feeling to "win" a championship off a blown call. Nice shot though.

No replay in HS ball, game ends on buzzer not triple 0's. Ref made a judgement call - and it went against the other team. What a shot under pressure!

It's easy to call the shot good or not when you see it in slow motion several times...you can get right 100 out of 100 times at slow motion...maybe 50 times out of 50 times at regular speed? It's a "bang, bang" play and that's what the official has...had a player made a free throw versus missing it in the first quarter and the games over but nobody remembers his miss.

like all the sport activities, you need a good cheerleaders team, and a excellent team that know how to answer to your orders, it's all with this you have all need things.
