Watch this high school basketball player sink a shot - off his face

This is the greatest fluke score you’ll see all day.

If Tharptown’s Max Nolen had actually tried to do this, there is no way it would have worked.

A mix-up between the Alabama hish school player and a teammate led to him getting smacked in the face with the ball.

But his blushes were spared because somehow, through some freak accident, the ball went into the basket - making it the jammiest layup ever.

Big up to Nolen’s girlfriend Ashyln Vandiver for recording the whole thing and posting a slo-mo video for the world to enjoy.
