A high school gym in Northern California went wild Friday night when a varsity basketball player made an incredible full-court shot with less than a second left in the game.

With 0.6 seconds on the clock, Temidayo Yussuf, a forward for St. Joseph Notre Dame High School, caught the ball after a missed free throw by El Cerrito High and immediately fired it down the court.

The 17-year-old landed the 80-foot shot, and sent the game into overtime.

El Cerrito ultimately recovered from the stunning shot and won 71-64 in overtime.
