Tyquone Greer drained a game-winning 3-pointer for Orr Academy High School of Chicago, helping his team to the state tournament in the process.



It almost didn't happen. Greer was shot in the leg while attending a neighborhood get-together just nine days prior.

"My leg was still kind of shaky, but this could have been our last game so I wanted to be out there," Greer told the Chicago Tribune. "If we lost, I wanted to make sure that I was on the court with my team. That's all that really mattered."
