Five-star Class of 2015 big man Ivan Rabb made a free throw with 0.8 seconds remaining in overtime to give Bishop O’Dowd a California state title over powerhouse Mater Dei. Regarded as the No. 8 overall prospect in the class, according to Rivals, Rabb’s free throw avenges last season’s title game loss to the same opponent.

Rabb is expected to announce his collegiate decision within a matter of days, sources confirmed to ESPN reported that Rabb is down to Arizona and Cal, and sources believe that the Golden Bears are the favorite to keep Rabb in his home state.

For now, here’s video from the Mercury News of the biggest shot of Rabb’s career. Rabb finished with 19 points and 20 rebounds in the state championship win. Bishop O’Dowd won 65-64.
