Watch Coppell’s Naz Brown hit a full-court buzzer-beater to beat Denton Guyer

Coppell’s Naz Brown had the No. 1 play on ESPN’s SportsCenter on Tuesday night after making a full-court buzzer-beater to beat Denton Guyer 66-63.

Guyer had a chance to win it, but a layup came up short, and Brown grabbed the ball, took one dribble and then heaved it the length of the court. He swished the shot and was mobbed by his teammates.

“Total shock. He was 80 feet from the basket, and the clock was running off, and he just threw one up and it went in. It was kind of a one in a million shot,” Coppell coach Clint Schnell said. “I made a comment to him in the locker room. I said, ‘I bet you couldn’t go out there and do that again if you stayed up here all week.’ “

Brown tore his ACL last March and had surgery the first week of April. He

Padres relief pitcher hit a grand slam off Max Scherzer and his family went crazy

The designated hitter is likely coming to the National League soon, so we won’t be treated to incredible moments like the one involving San Diego Padres relief pitcher Daniel Camarena.

Camarena had come to the plate just 31 times in his eight seasons as a pro (minors or majors) before Thursday. He had five hits, all singles, so what he did Thursday night can only be described as extraordinary.

After being recalled from Triple-A earlier in the day, Camarena came on in relief in the fourth inning and found himself batting with the Padres trailing the Nationals 8-2. It was a big situation with the bases loaded and two outs.

Oh, and three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer was pitching.

So, yeah, what happened next was remarkable:

“I still don’t have a word for it,” Camarena told MLB.com. “I’m still trying to find a word for

Suns’ Chris Paul asks referee to hit Nuggets’ Nikola Jokic with technical foul, promptly gets his wish

Chris Paul doesn’t have the best relationship with every single NBA referee, but he was definitely on the same page with the officiating crew for Friday night’s game between the Suns and Nuggets.

During the fourth quarter of Phoenix’s 116-102 win, Denver star Nikola Jokic, who had formally accepted his MVP trophy before the start of Game 3, erupted in anger after a drive to the basket against Suns center Deandre Ayton. Jokic seemed to think he had been fouled, but referee Ben Taylor watched the sequence play out and felt that Jokic simply lost control of the ball.

Jackson State QB’s Helmet Flies Off After Massive Hit

Jackson State quarterback loses helmet.

Jackson State quarterback loses helmet.

Jackson State moved to 2-0 under Deion Sanders this afternoon, but it had to leave everything it had on the field in order to get by Grambling State.

During the fourth quarter, Jackson State quarterback Jalon Jones was trying to run for a first down when he found himself in a high-speed collision with three Grambling State defenders.

The shot that Jones took was so brutal that his helmet flew off and traveled for about 10 yards. To make matters worse, he was well short of the first-down marker.

It was honestly impressive that Jones managed to maintain possession of the football despite turning into a human helicopter for a split second.

Here’s the collision that occurred during this afternoon’s Jackson State game:

At the end of the day, JSU managed to get the last laugh.

With roughly a minute remaining and their backs against
