"Lance Jeter gets the basketball, races up the floor and heaves a shot while on the run just inside of halfcourt.

The ball goes in just as the buzzer sounds.

Sound familiar?

"I feel comfortable in those situations. It just comes natural," Jeter said.

While some things change, others stay the same.

It has been more than eight years since Jeter made the memorable shot at the end of triple overtime to help Beaver Falls beat archrival Aliquippa in one of the most memorable WPIAL championship games ever.

His most recent buzzer beater occurred this past winter on the other side of the world."
