West Texas A&M Banked a Buzzer Beater to go to Championship
We already mentioned the Lady Chaps made it to the Division II National Championship game where they'll face the Drury Panthers for a shot at their third Championship in the last six seasons.
Apparently, West Texas owns Division II basketball because not only are the Lady Chaps playing in the final game of the season, West Texas A&M dropped a buzzer-beater to secure their position in the NCAA Division II national championship game.
The scenario that led to the spectacular ending at the Division II Final Four in Evansville, Indiana absolutely bonkers. With Lincoln Memorial up 86-85, West Texas A&M junior guard Qua Grant got the inbound with just over 7 seconds left in the game and attempted to drive to the rack. Gray missed and the ball was tipped outside of the three-point line like Marus Santos-Silva was in the game.
That's where sophomore Zach Toussaint was able to get the loose ball and toss up a prayer, which bounced off the back of the rim and through the hoop put the Buffs up 87-86 as time expired and Lincoln Memorial stared on in disbelief.
Watch the sequence here:
March Madness never ends, and even more impressive: that was Toussaint's only made field goal of the game in six attempts. Qua Gray and Joel Murray led the way with 25 and 24 points respectively. The Buffs advance to their first NCAA Division II basketball championship game and will face two-time champions Northwest Missouri State for the national title.
The Division II championship game is Saturday at 11 am on CBS.
