Home-schooled student scores incredible, last-second basketball shot

A Johnson County home-schooled basketball player is basking in the limelight after a buzzer bester shot just before halftime.

With a few seconds left before halftime Tuesday night, the Johnson County Sports Association Lions were down by 8.

Corey Stenson, 18, got the ball just as the clock ran down.

He tossed it from the three-quarter court and made it.

"I was just so shocked, and everybody jumped on me so fast," said Stenson. "It was just crazy."

As a player in the JCSA, which is made up of home-school families, the huge three-pointer is even more impressive.

"We're not quite in the same arena that a lot of the public and private schools…they have the opportunity that their coaches are there full time, they're there for PE class in the morning, they're there for athletics at 3:30 when class lets out while other dads and moms are still working," said Jimmy Stanford with the JCSA.

The shot motivated the team to come back and take the lead in the second half, and even take the game into overtime, but they lost on a second shot from the other team.
