Blake Hoffarber launched an amazing shot from the floor during the Minnesota High School Basketball Championship game that tied the score. His team went on to win. Hoffarber sent the ball into the net from his back — lying on the floor with half his body outside the court. NPR's Robert Siegel talks with Hoffarber.
