Chicago High Schooler Tyquone Greer Hits Game-Winning 3-Pointer Nine Days After Being Shot in the Leg

Tyquone Greer is a senior at Chicago’s Orr High School. Greer, who has offers to play at schools like Illinois, Auburn and Providence, scored just one basket in Orr’s supersectional win on Tuesday and it was a game-winning 3-pointer from the corner. What makes the shot so improbable is that Greer got shot 9 days earlier. From the Chicago Tribune:

The moment arrived nine days after Greer took a bullet in his calf at a late-night party. He didn’t play in the sectional semifinal and appeared for about a minute during Friday’s final against Fenwick.

“This could have been our last game and I wanted to make my presence felt,” Greer said. “For me to take that shot, God planned it for me because he has some better stuff for me. I knew I was going to make it. I was very confident.

Orr will play in the state semifinals on Firday.
