Watch Alabama Signee Collin Sexton Hit a Buzzer Beater to Win Region Championship
Alabama signee Collin Sexton continues to show why he's considered one of the top players in the class of 2017.
The five-star guard returned from a concussion and came off the bench in Pebblebrook's region championship game against rival Westlake on Saturday. This was a rematch of last year's Georgia Class AAAAAA state championship game that Pebblebrook lost, and Sexton stole the show with a 43-point effort and a buzzer beater to force overtime.
The sequence begins at the 14:35 mark in the video at the top of the page. Pebblebrook was inbounding the ball from near halfcourt with just one second on the clock and down 74-71. With just enough time to catch and shoot, Sexton received the pass about 30 feet from the basket.
Even with three defenders on him, Sexton rose up and delivered the huge buzzer beater to force overtime. Here's another angle of the shot.
His team would eventually go on to win the game, 87-83. Pebblebrook will face Lassiter in the first round of the GHSA Class AAAAAA playoffs on Saturday.
