Marvey’o Otey might well be a name to remember.

The William Byrd High School star has become a viral internet hit with a quite unbelievable behind-the-back three-point shot on the run.

There’s no doubt that lady luck played its part in this quite miraculous moment, but credit must go to Otey for even trying such an audacious effort.

A quick brakeaway appeared to go array as a teammate tossed the ball downcourt for Otey to chase. It seemed to be heading for the sidelines, but Otey somehow got to it, and proceeded to launch a shot with both feet in the air.

Indeed, the youngster even went out of the fire exit when after making the miracle shot, meaning he didn't see it go in. It's a shame, 'cos Otey found nothing but net!

The big question is - will he ever make it to the NBA? If he does, this shot will be filling highlight reels for years to come.
