Buzzer-beating half-court alley oop wins game, makes "SportsCenter" top 10

SouthLake Christian's Andrew Howard is probably having himself a pretty good week.

On Tuesday night, he took a half-court pass from teammate Miles Boone and threw down a sudden one-handed alley-oop dunk at the buzzer. SouthLake Christian beat Hickory Grove 61-59. Howard and his teams got mobbed by fans and Howard's dunk ended up No. 3 on ESPN's "SportsCenter" top 10.

And he did it on Senior Night.

SouthLake -- coached by former N.C. State legend Rodney Monroe -- improved to 16-7 overall and 11-4 in the Metrolina Conference. Howard ended the game with 15 points, eight rebounds and three blocks.
