If you are looking for sporting excitement this summer it seems Australian semi-pro basketball is the place to be, as a game between the Mornington Breakers vs. Pakenham Warriors featured what may be the most impressive ever buzzer-beater imaginable.

An errant pass sets up a Warriors player for a shot he will tell his grandkids about as he hurls up a prayer from behind the backboard as time expires while falling out of bounds to hand Mornington its first loss of the season.

The shot is very similar to a game-tying bucket in a game between Evreux and Boulazac in a second-tier league in France last month.
