See the senior perform a miraculous game-winner to keep his team alive.

Mark Garcia of Seguin (Texas) was not to be denied of glory on Tuesday night.

The Matadors and Lanier were tied at 68 with 10 seconds left and a trip to the second round of the Texas state playoffs on the line.

The senior guard somehow stole the ball just beyond half court in the bi-district matchup and drained a game-winning prayer at the buzzer to send the crowd into a frenzy with a 71-68 miraculous victory.

Garcia's heroic play landed him the No. 10 spot on SportsCenter and helped his team move to 17-13. Seguin will face Angleton in the regional quarterfinals next.
