Owen Groesser makes 3-pointers
Uploaded by admin on January 25th, 2013

Owen Groesser enjoyed a night to remember, and took Twitter by storm in the process.

Groesser, a junior high student with Down syndrome, made a pair of 3-pointers in his school’s basketball game Wednesday, prompting a Twitter campaign that resulted in a highlight on “SportsCenter.”

According to ABC affiliate WXYZ in Detroit, Groesser had not played this season for Van Hoosen Junior High School.

But after entering late in the game, Groesser received a pass beyond the arc and sank a 3-pointer, sparking a wild celebration in the stands. Groesser also made another 3-pointer, finishing with six points in approximately two minutes of playing time.

On Thursday, Groesser scored again, finishing with four points.

After Wednesday’s game, Groesser’s friends and teammates launched a Twitter campaign called #GetOwenOnSportsCenter, which trended as highlights of the game spread on the Internet.

The campaign was a success, as Groesser’s exploits were featured on “SportsCenter’s” Top 10 plays Wednesday night and, on Thursday, an interview on SportsCenter with his father beside him.
