Special Needs Basketball Player Scores 14 Points on Senior Night

Watch a basketball player with Down syndrome go on a scoring spree in his varsity team's season finale.

With just two minutes left in Bensalem High School's Senior Night game, varsity basketball coach John Mullin put Kevin Grow into the lineup. This was no run-of-the-mill substitution.

A high school senior, Grow has Down syndrome. He had been the boys basketball team manager for four years. Senior night was his last game as part of the team.

In the short time Grow was in the game, he put up 14 points, scoring on a layup and four dramatic 3-pointers.

After he drained his final trey at the buzzer to give Bensalem a 64-40 win, his team stormed the court to celebrate Grow's incredible game.

Watch the video above to see Grow make it rain during the final minutes of the game, and check out the video below to see what it was like to be in the stands for Grow's phenomenal performance.
