Saturday, Feb. 1, 2014 was a memorable day in college basketball. Duke and Syracuse produced a gem. Four top-10 teams lost and late in the evening, just about the time No. 1 Arizona was experiencing the feeling of losing for the first time this season at Cal, word came from the Big Sky Conference of something almost unbelievable.
Sacramento State guard Dylan Garrity received an inbound pass with .7 seconds remaining in overtime, turned and fired from more than 70 feet away and drained a game-winner to beat Weber State 78-75. (Video below).
Officials reviewed video of the play while Garrity's teammates mobbed him and called it good.
As if Garrity's improbable shot wasn't enough. It came immediately on the heels of what would have been a game-winning 3-pointer from Weber State's Davion Berry, who shot from about three feet beyond the top of the arc with 2 seconds left.
Prior to the two amazing shots, both head coaches earned technical fouls in the final 15 seconds arguing foul calls. So in a span of 15 seconds of game time there were two instances of a team shooting four consecutive free throws and two long-range bombs that found their target. The teams combined to score 12 points in those 15 seconds.
