WATCH: Cork teenager rivals LeBron with superb last-second basket

We were so busy admiring LeBron James’ fantastic buzzer-beater winner on Sunday night that this equally impressive effort from the Second Year Schools League last week nearly went unnoticed.

Gaelcolaiste Mhuire AG played Mercy Mounthawk Tralee in the Second Year ‘A’ All-Ireland League Semi-Final on Thursday.

Gaelcolaiste Mhuire were behind by a point with seconds to go, before Seamus O’Hannigain passed the ball to his twin brother Scott, who dropped in this fantastic three-pointer to give them a 24-22 victory.

Forget the Cleveland Cavaliers, you can see all the basketball action you need in the All Ireland Schools League.

The Cork team went on to beat beat St Pat’s of Castleisland in the final the following day.
