ROANOKE, Va. (WTVR) – He has a knack for making a lot of baskets, but a Roanoke high school basketball player is getting a lot of attention for one incredible shot he made. With less than five minutes on the clock, William Byrd High School’s Marvey’o Otey chases down a loose ball, jumps, grabs the ball and tosses it behind his back before landing out of bounds.
