What a buzzer-beater Literally – at the buzzer (eng. Buzzer beater). Throw in basketball, committed immediately before the end of the quarter and with the accompanying sound of a siren. In most cases used in reference to a shooting, bringing the team to victory or transforms the game into overtime. But can also mean a throw at the end of a quarter or half of the game. If the player releases the ball from his hands, and the sound of the siren about the end of time occurs in the flight of the ball, accurate shot still counts.
