North Tama senior makes shot of a lifetime

Posted: Updated:
TRAER (KWWL) - It's a shot basketball players dream of making, and it happened in Traer Tuesday night when North Tama took on Dunkerton.

Just a few seconds before the half, Dunkerton scores, but it was after that shot that has people talking.

Paul Kaufmann got the ball back after the inbound, tossed it up nearly a full court away, and sinks the basket.

"I couldn't believe it. I've never made a shot even at practice that far," said Paul Kaufmann. "I just chucked it up. I think the adrenaline helped a little bit."

That put North Tama up by five leading into the half.  

Head coach Brandon Clubb called the shot incredible. 

"I mean, I've talked to a couple people today just saying, 'I've never seen a shot made from that far away,'" said Clubb. "Usually you don't get an opportunity to take one. But even to see one made, you know, that's pretty incredible."

North Tama ended up winning that game 69 to 53.
