VIDEO: Nevada's Deonte Burton hammers home a game-winning 3

If you consider yourself a college hoops aficianado, you best know who Deonte Burton is. The Nevada senior guard made our preseason list of the top 100 guys in the sport.

On Friday Burton -- who is putting up 25.6 points per game, making him one of the best in the country in that department -- sank a game-winning 3 to beat Chattanooga 81-80 on the Wolf Pack's home floor. The video's highlight/shot comes halfway through. It was a banked-in bucket coming off a curl at the top of the key. No easy 3-ball there.

Then watch Burton's reaction. Pure heart and excitement. College hoops!

He finished with a game-high 28 points.
