Coach Knocks Down Last-Second 3-Pointer In Blowout Loss (Video)

The Augusta (Ky.) Panthers were bounced from the Region 10 semifinals on Friday, losing 99-69, but that 30-point loss is the last thing on anyone’s mind.

Instead, the conversation is all about departing Augusta coach Robin Kelsch. The 13-year veteran coach will become the school’s principal rather than coach, so in his farewell game he stepped up and hit a last-second shot at the buzzer.

And no, this wasn’t a case of a coach or manager gone mad in a blowout loss. Kelsch had an agreement with Scott coach Brad Carr for the Panthers coach to take one final shot. Kelsch and Carr have been friends dating back to their days at Northern Kentucky University. In the video, you can see that Kelsch nailed his shot.

“The fact that it went in, I had a tear in my eye, Carr told the Kentucky Post. It was a fitting way for Robin to end things.”

For those keeping score at home, the basket did not count on the final score.
