Nine days after being shot in the calf, Orr Academy High School basketball player Tyquone Greer said he just wanted to make his presence felt. 

It was. 

Greer scored a game-winning three-pointer Tuesday night, according to the Tribune, allowing his team to advance in the playoffs. 

"My leg was still kind of shaky, but this could have been our last game so I wanted to be out there," Greer told the Tribune after hitting a three-pointer with three seconds left to win the game.

Greer was shot in the calf nine days ago at a party and missed just one game.
