Magic Johnson can't believe Louisville sophomore's clutch free throw

Louisville sophomore Mangok Mathiang is a 48 percent free throw shooter this season and found himself at the foul line Sunday afternoon with the Cardinals' season on the line in an Elite Eight game against Michigan State.

The Spartans held a one-point lead with 4.9 seconds left in regulation and Mathiang needing to make at least one free throw to tie the score. He did just that with a fortuitous bounce that Michigan State legend Magic Johnson couldn't believe as he watched from the stands in Syracuse. Johnson led the Spartans to the NCAA championship in 1979.

While Louisville managed to push the game to an extra five minutes because Mathiang came through, Michigan State dominated the overtime and won 76-70 to advance to the Final Four as a No. 7 seed.
