And I thought LaMelo Ball was feeling it when he pointed at the half-court line and drained a 3-pointer from that spot. The unconscious shooter in the video above is St. Anne’s Jalmen Sullivan. And during the 2nd quarter of the Kankakee Holiday Tournament Championship, he knocked down six consecutive 3-pointers! Now, six straight from deep is extremely impressive, but what makes this absolutely ridiculous is the second to last one was from near half-court and the final one was from half-court. The cherry on top is all of this happened within 1 minute and 30 seconds! Yes, you read that correctly. In the 2nd quarter, with his team losing 13-12, Sullivan knocked down six consecutive 3-pointers within a span of 1 minute and 30 seconds to give his team a 30-19 lead.
Sullivan would finish the game with a game-high 39 and lead his team to a 81-69 championship win over Illiana Christian.
