#SocialStudies v5.0

March 1, 2012

It’s officially March – and that means that tournament season is about to seriously go off. 

Drama, buzzer-beaters, trophies, tears and memories that last far beyond this magnificent month will all come into play.  #SocialStudies will be ready and waiting for it all.

Remember to whip out that smartphone and film! You could catch something like this …

1.Did he call 'glass?'

Gary Harris, a senior from Hamilton Southeastern High School (Ind.), is a name that many in our state will know in a year or so – he’s signed to play hoops at Michigan State. While that’s all fine and good, the reason we mention him today is this stunning shot he drained during Indiana’s sectional playoffs. Harris finished the game with 33 points, but his most impressive three came with 4.6 seconds remaining.

The quick version:

This clip really gives you the feel – what a crowd, what a stage, what a shot.

2. Quick work, big win

Hey -- we know him! Student Advisory Council member Kevin Beazley and his Detroit Catholic Central wrestling team took home the Division 1 team title this past weekend – with Beazley grappling for a total of 1 minute and 42 seconds in his three matches. Watch one of his pins here: 20 seconds of work.

3. Bet you haven't seen this before

Sometimes, you find a video of 859 people playing human dominoes… with mattresses.  Who knew this would set a Guinness Record?

Consider those just a few appetizers for the month to come.

Remember, if you see something high school sports-related online that the rest of us must see, or if you videoed something yourself, upload it to Youtube and send it on over.
