WATCH: Basketball player with Down syndrome wows crowd Published: February 11, 2014

There was no shortage of emotion on display when Kevin Grow got a chance to play for the Bensalem (Pa.) Fighting Owls late in the fourth quarter against Neshaminy (Pa.) Saturday. After all, the senior with Down syndrome has been the basketball team's beloved manager for four straight years. But from the look and sound of it on You Tube, no one in the crowd could have scripted this game's finish, according to Yahoo Sports.

With about two minutes to go in the game, Bensalem coach John Mullin put Grow into the game in front of the home crowd on Senior Night. With a little help from his Owl teammates and some gracious sportsmanship from Neshaminy, the coast was cleared for Grow to score a layup. Feeling good about the close-range finish, Grow thought it prudent to start shooting from beyond the arc. And good thing he did, since he absolutely caught fire from 3-point land.
