It was nothing but net for young Lainy Frederickson, who was sent into the game in the final minute.
Lainy Fredrickson's amazing shot came when her Norman High School basketball team took on arch rivals Norman North Friday night.
The special needs senior received chants from fans who were telling the school’s coach: “We Want Lainy! We Want Lainy!”
With under a minute left, she hugged her coach, went out on the court and scored the final basket.
“It was really loud and really fun,” Lainy told Inside Edition following her heroics.

Lainy’s mother called the experience "something I will never forget."
The clip went viral after it appeared on ESPN, making Lainy an overnight sensation.
