Video: The rare walk-off dunk gives Ball State a win

By Matt Norlander | College Basketball Writer

Norfolk State was one of the feel-good stories from last year's NCAA tournament as soon as it defeated No. 2 Missouri as a 15 seed in the Round of 64.

On Wednesday night, Norfolk State's tough follow-up campaign to being Cinderella (it's just 6-10 this year) took a tough hit in the form of a rare game-ending sequence -- and the Spartans getting a taste of their own medicine against Ball State.

With six seconds remaining, Ball State briskly got the ball up the floor and made the home crowd happy with a win after forward Majok Majok sent the orange through the cylinder just as time expired to beat the Spartans, 62-61. Weird play to watch, given how basketball almost never provides the circumstance that leads to a dunk ending a game. The timing always has to be right. Perfect, even. Majok threw the ball through at the exact tenth of a second upon the clock's expiration. Sweet rhythm there, man.

Most of the credit is owed to junior point guard Jesse Berry, whose heady assist was clearly unpredictable. Berry has an internal clock that any quarterback could admire. WLBC Radio's Joel Godett and David Eha are on the call in the video above.

Ball State is now 6-6 on the season.
