Unlikely Hero

In this round of 32 showdown between 4th and 5th seeded opponents, the team from East Lansing lost their star guard to a leg injury, and along with him a 16 point lead. In the closing seconds, down 83-82 but with possession, they found a new season savior as the backup guard found some space at the top of the arc and launched this game winning three pointer as time expired, sending his team on to the Sweet Sixteen roundThey would advance all the way to the final four before being knocked out of the tournament, but the unlikely hero forever cemented his place in his school's and the tournament's history with that buzzer-beating shot.
