Endings of basketball games don’t come more improbable than the one that occurred Friday night in Evanston.

Blake Peters, an Evanston freshman, grabbed a rebound of a missed free throw and heaved a nearly fullcourt shot that miraculously went in to give the Wildkits a 45-44 victory over Maine South.

The shot was the No. 1 play of the day on ESPN’s “SportsCenter.” Here’s the video, courtesy of Evanston’s @CoachMikeEllis.
