Have You Seen This? Wasatch Academy hooper crushes Mount Pleasant rim

BREAKING GLASS — Have you ever wanted to just go crazy during a church ball game?

One Utah high schooler did just that, but in a game that counted.

It was senior night Wednesday at consensus top-10 nationally ranked Wasatch Academy when junior Brennan Rigsby forced a turnover, cruised down the court in transition, and sent the sellout crowd watching the Tigers' final regular-season home game against Layton Christian into a frenzy in Mount Pleasant, Sanpete County.

No word if anyone called 911 to report a homicide in Mount Pleasant. But if they did, it might have been justified; Rigsby flat murdered that rim.

Rigsby finished with 13 points and four assists in the Tigers' 130-49 rout of the Eagles, a game that had six players in double figures, including Utah-bound forward Caleb Lohner's 23.

Speaking of Lohner, the best reaction to the dunk came from the former resident of Flower Mound, Texas. Watch the highlight as he jumps off the bench, flexes, then tells the Ball is Life video crew, "Let's go home; it's done."

Rigsby, a rising junior, isn't even a full-time starter for Wasatch Academy, either. Aside from Lohner, the Tigers have five Division I-bound seniors all with starters' minutes, including BYU signee Richie Saunders, Michigan State's Mady Sissoko, Fresno State's Leo Colimerio and Cincinnati's Mike Saunders Jr.

The best among the rising class has been considered to be five-star sophomore Richard Isaacs Jr.

But maybe Rigsby's name should be added to that list.
