Basketball player on amazing buzzer beating shot: I knew it was good once it hit the ground and the crowd went crazy

It's the amazing buzzer-beating shot that has gone viral. It didn't happen in the NBA or even college basketball. It happened at a New York High School sectional championship. If you haven't seen it, check out Khalil Edney's 55' throw for New Rochelle High School that helped the team win the game.

The insane basket propelled ninth-seeded school to a 61-60 victory over third-seeded rival Mt. Vernon.

Khalil talks with Soledad on "Starting Point" this morning, along with coach Rasaun Young to talk about the amazing shot.

And in a fun twist, Soledad asks Khalil to reattempt that amazing shot. Can lightning strike twice? Check out the video to see if he made the basket.
