Powell’s Cooper Dennie, 10, goes viral for trick shot shootout goal at Blue Jackets game

Cooper Dennie awaits his shootout attempt during an intermission at the Blue Jackets' game Monday.

Cooper Dennie woke up Monday morning knowing exactly what he was going to do in his shootout attempt that night. On Tuesday, the 10-year-old woke up and saw himself on SportsCenter.

Dennie electrified the crowd at Nationwide Arena on Monday with a 360-degree spinning lacrosse-style shootout goal — and soon found himself going viral. By Tuesday night, the clip had more than 350,000 views on Twitter and was No. 10 on SportsCenter’s Top 10 Monday night.

It’s a move Dennie, who lives in Powell, has been working on in spurts for nearly a year, beginning with practicing just the spin before adding the element of picking the puck up off the ice and then spinning.

“It really came to a head around October when we learned that we were going to do the shootout through the (Columbus) Capitals select team,” said Dennie’s father, Brian. “He had started talking about, ‘What

Ex-Rutgers basketball player drains incredible shot for her students

By now you’ve seen it: a third-grade teacher pulls up from Steph Curry-range with her students’ hot chocolate on the line. Then, two quick dribbles, a couple steps forward, and…nothing bet net! Swiss Miss mustaches for all the rugrats.

Students at Washington D.C.’s Holy Trinity would be wise to bet on their teacher all winter long. As it turns out, that teacher, Kathleen Fitzpatrick, has been draining threes longer than her third graders have been tying their own shoes.

See, hear Doncic’s game-winning shot vs. Celtics from multiple angles

We all knew a Luka Magic apperance in Doncic’s fourth season would simply be a matter of when, not if.

The first flash finally appeared Saturday night when Doncic drained a game-winning three-pointer to lift the Mavericks over the Celtics, 107-104.

Fourth-quarter Doncic has become bad luck for Boston lately. In two home games against the Celtics this calendar year, Doncic has nailed two game-winning, buzzer-beating 3-pointers. The latest capped his best offensive performance of the season — 33 points, nine rebounds and five assists on 12 of 21 field goals — and helped the Mavericks stave off the Celtics’ late upset threat.

Relive the magical moment with videos showing the buzzer-beater from alternate angles and see reactions from across the sports world:
