In one of the all-time great finishes in NCAA Tournament history, No. 11 Northern Iowa pulled off the upset, beating sixth-seeded Texas with a half-court buzzer-beater for the win.
After it looked like Texas had forced overtime with a shot with less than three seconds left, UNI had one last shot for the win. Paul Jesperson took the ball at half-court and banked it home.
Here’s the shot. Wow.
Here is a great view of the shot from the fans.
