Outrageous High School basketball score goes viral

When Marvey'o Otey burst forward for William Byrd High School he had little idea that he was about score a shot that would go viral around the world.

In fact at first he was simply disappointed that his team-mate's pass was too long.

"He threw it too far," says Otey. "I was just like, 'Oh, man'.”

His emotions rapidly turned to amazement though as he sunk an unbelievable three pointer.

With the ball heading off the court, he flings it behind his back and continues on his way out of the gym, turning to hear the crowd go wild as it drops in.

“I was out there (in the hallway) and I heard everybody going crazy but I didn’t know it was for that reason,” says Otey.

“I didn’t know what was going on for a second. People just keep playing it over and over and I just get more and more amazed every time I see it."
