Quadruple-overtime games do not happen very often, and an even less common occurrence is a quadruple-overtime game with three buzzer shots.

On Thursday, two Minnesota high school basketball teams, Waseca High School and Marshall High School, competed in the Section 2AAA Final.

At the end of the fourth quarter, Waseca led 72–69. However, a 3-pointer from a Marshall player took the game into overtime. Jeff Van Hee, a basketball coach at Madelia High School, shared a video of the shot on Twitter.

According to KSTP TV5, during overtime, both teams scored nine points. During the second overtime, both teams scored six points.

With 1.7 seconds left in the third overtime, Waseca took a near full-court shot, and the ball went in as the buzzer sounded, tying the game once again. Van Hee shared a video of the shot on Twitter.

During quadruple overtime, a 3-point buzzer shot gave Waseca the win, for a final score of 103–100. Van Hee posted a video of the game-winning shot on Twitter.
