Check this out!

One of the most amazing plays of the game came in the last two minutes of the fourth quarter with Tyler Thomas coming out of nowhere to dunk the ball after his teammate missed a three-point shot.

In this video that his teammate Nick Huribal posted on his Twitter page you can hear an “Aw” after Chris Bierezowiec (#31) shoots, then, from the right of the screen, Thomas appears like a superhero, snatching the ball in midair and in one fluid motion, dunks it.

There is so much to see in this clip. Watch the coach, listen to the crowd and celebrate this amazing moment over and over again. This young man is going to be huge!
