75-foot buzzer-beater gives NAIA school a victory

Last-second heaves never get old. Ever. The two-second traverse always gets your attention. People believe, What if? Will it? Looks like it can. And every so often, it does. The ball, the shot, is true. And everyone, except those on the losing end, pops out of their clothes.

Saturday night, college basketball got one of its best game-winners you'll see all season. Chase Spreen a Lindsey Wilson College senior guard from Bedford, Ind., chucked the shot after one dribble and two steps. The initial camera shot doesn't even keep up with the ball. The replay's even better, though. Down goes Georgetown College, 79-78.

Every good buzzer-beater becomes a great one if the play-by-play man gives his heart and soul to the moment. That certainly happened here -- and then some. This is committing to the moment. Hell, this is marrying yourself to it.

Play 'til the buzzer sounds, boys! All in all, my favorite part might be the play-by-play announcer.. his mind just completely blew when that shot went in haha.

Absolutely incredible shot!!  A reminder to play D until the buzzer sounds because you just never know.

You have to enjoy watching that. Seeing the excitment of kids playing more for the love of the game than anything else is just priceless. And to hear the announcers go nuts was a great touch. Now if only D1 schools/players had more of this...
