VIDEO: Unreal buzzer-beater keeps NAIA team undefeated

Good morning, and welcome to the latest example of why sports can't ever stop being awesome.

The Foresters of Huntington University, an NAIA school based out of Huntington, Ind., won their game against Marian Tuesday night thanks to a prayer from 75 feet that fell through the hoop as time expired. 

Huntington senior Shane Merryman had one second to heave the ball, and he did, giving his team the victory and all of those players a lifetime memory. Final: Huntington 61, Marian 59.

At the NAIA level, Merryman is one of the best players in the nation, averaging 23.1 points. Huntington remained perfect because of the perfect shot; the Foresters are now 9-0. Can we get these guys to play Rutgers?
