Former UCLA guard Cameron Dollar and his Seattle University team recently finished a historic first season of full Division I play. The team posted a winning record and ended the year with victories in eight of its last nine games despite playing a majority of road games with players originally recruited for Division II play.
But none of that helped Dollar in a recent faculty vs. students charity game at the school. With time expiring, a student drained a 3-pointer directly over the Seattle coach to give the students a victory. (In the faculty's defense, students could "buy" points during the game, with all money going to the Make-A-Wish foundation.)
Here's the incriminating clip:
It's all in good fun, of course. You can see Dollar smiling and congratulating the lucky student. The coach should know all about buzzer beaters; he was the one who inbounded the ball to Tyus Edney before his famous streak in the 1995 NCAA tournament.
After the game, Dollar joked to ESPN's Diamond Leung, ""You don't have to see the video to know I'm washed up. I've been washed up."
