All 10 Players Confused, Switch Baskets Mid-Quarter During Basketball Game

The women's U17 World Championship was in full swing a few days ago, and a riveting matchup between Slovak Republic and Mexico found some intrigue at the end of the third quarter.

I'm not going to pretend to know any of the players involved, but let's recap what happened. After Mexico misses a free throw, a player from Slovak Republic secures the rebound. She then shoots at the basket that the free throw was just missed at--in other words, her own basket. The ball goes in, giving Mexico two points. Mexico proceeds to inbound the ball and dribble down the court, the attack on their own basket only neutralized by time expiring in the quarter. Just unreal.
