    Many years ago when I was over basketball in our LDS stake, this exact circumstance came up. Not just one player but the entire opposing team passed the ball to the disabled boy not only once but several times in the last few seconds of the game to be sure that he scored before the game ended. A very sharp scorekeeper observed what was happening and held off the final buzzer for a few seconds until the basket had been made. Granted the game wasn't at risk since the opposing team had a double digit lead but it was still a classy thing to do.
