Moment: Jets Advance on Buzzer Beater

Seth Polfus couldn't believe it. Watching the clip four years later, it's easy to remember why.

Powers North Central's 2017 Class D Semifinal against Southfield Christian had stretched nearly 40 minutes. And when Polfus' shot fell with one-tenth of a second left on March 23, 2017, it gave the Jets an 84-83 win over Southfield Christian, sent them back to the Class D championship game and increased their nation-leading winning streak to 82 games. 

We're tipping off a string of daily "MHSAA Moments" with this incredible finish, described after by Polfus, in part: "I didn’t really know where I was. And then I saw the 6-4 kid coming at me, pump-faked him like I always do when I’m really scared. And then just launched it, and I saw it hit off the rim, thought it was an air ball, and then I just didn’t know what happened.”
