This is one of the more bizarre finishes to a game - playoffs or not.

Check out this video from the final few seconds of yesterday's Monessen-Laurel game in the first round of the WPIAL Class AA playoffs. Thanks to M. Zubasic for sending it to me.

Let me set the story. Monessen is leading Laurel, 44-43, with 0.6 second left in the game. Poor Monessen. Just watch what happens on this YouTube Video.

 What a way to lose. I feel bad for the Monessen kid taking the ball out of bounds. It's easy to say now, but if you're in that situation and can't get the ball in with 0.6 second left, you just throw the ball high to the other end of the court. Let someone touch it there, for either team.
