An eye-popping shot has landed Beaufort High point guard Jawan Mack in the national spotlight.  As the first half was winding down in Beaufort’s January 6 game against Hilton Head Island High, Mack launched a desperation heave from near his own foul line that found the bottom of the net 80 feet away.  The halftime buzzer sounded, the crowd went wild and 16-year-old Mack leaped into the air.  Video of the amazing shot landed at No. 2 on ESPN SportsCenter’s Plays of the Day.  “I was just amazed that it went in,” Mack said. “I think I’m still in shock.”  Asked what he planned to do next, he said, “Just keep practicing.”  Click here to see Mack’s halftime buzzer-beater.
