Five buzzer beaters in one game!
Garfield Heights and St. Ignatius, two Cleveland high schools, had a heck of a regional final game Saturday. Ultimately, Garfield Heights' Bulldogs would beat St. Ignatius's Wildcats, 70–69, but not before five buzzer-beating shots. That may seem impossible in a four-quarter sport, but two overtime periods helped extend the dramatics. Here's the most impressive of the five shots, this one made as the third quarter ended:

The Denver Broncos have told the San Francisco 49ers that they think quarterback Colin Kaepernick is worth a fourth-round pick, reports NFL Network’s Michael Silver.
The Broncos have not offered the 49ers a fourth-round pick, but believe that to be the “right price,” reports Silver.
Denver is looking for a quarterback after the retirement of Peyton Manning and the departure of Brock Osweiler in free agency. The only quarterback on Denver’s roster currently is Trevor Siemian, who did not take a snap last season.
Kaepernick has become expendable for San Francisco after his benching in favor of Blaine Gabbert last season. Kaepernick played in only nine games in 2015, and ended the season injured.
In his career, Kaepernick has completed 59.9% of his passes for 10,030 yards, with 57 touchdowns and 26 interceptions.
Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban will miss at least the next two games, coach Michel Therrien announced on Monday.
Subban is still recovering from a neck injury he sustained last Thursday. He was taken off the ice on a stretcher after colliding with teammate Alexei Emelin, but the injury was considered “non-serious.”
Subban has played in 68 games this season, with six goals and 45 assists. He is averaging over 26 minutes of ice time per game.
The Canadiens are 32–31–6 and nine points out of a Wild Card spot for the playoffs.
