WATCH: Seguin boys basketball team wins playoff game on wild, half court buzzer-beater
Matadors win first playoff game since 2005
SAN ANTONIO – The Seguin High School boys basketball team used a wild, half-court buzzer beater shot Tuesday night to defeat Austin Lanier in the state playoffs.
Video of the shot and the Matadors' dramatic 71-68 bi-district win made the rounds on social media.
Video shot by Seguin Gazette Sports Editor Marcel Louis-Jacques shows Seguin’s Mark Garcia stealing the ball from a Lanier player on the game’s final possession, picking it up and launching it from beyond half-court.
Garcia hits the shot and is surrounded by his teammates and coaches.
The Matadors won a playoff game for the first time since 2005. It’s Seguin’s first postseason trip since 2011.
The Matadors will play Angleton in the next round of the 5A Region IV state tournament.
Watch the shot below from a few different angles:
