With time winding down on the game clock in regulation and Huntington Prep down by three, Keldon Johnson calmly dribbled the ball down court, and shot a contested three over a North Carolina defender. The ball went through the net and Huntington Prep went on to win the game 103-98 in overtime, thanks to a spectacular performance from Johnson, who did not miss a free throw in the extra period.
Johnson’s three to tie the game came seconds after guard Kane Ma hit an equally impressive three-point shot to put the Tar Heels up by three.
“A lot of the plays are ran for us coming off a screen for a shot at the end,” Ma said. “I mean, it was a good pass by Rob."
The shot was one of many great plays made by Ma on the night, who on one particular play made a defender look like he was on skates before calmly sinking a three. He capped off a big first half for the Tar Heels, who controlled a double-digit lead for most of the 20 minutes.
However, Huntington Prep was able to claw back in the game, thanks to the skill of their small forward, Johnson. Johnson, the No. 18 high school recruit in the nation for 2018, already has an NBA body and still has room to grow for his frame. With prep down late in the game, the ball went through Johnson's hand, and each time, he converted.
