Lindsey Wilson College and Georgetown College, two small schools from Kentucky who compete in the Mid-South Conference of the NAIA, went head to head Saturday night in college hoops, and the ending of their game was something truly spectacular.
Down 78-76 with barely any time left in the game, Lindsey Wilson senior guard Chase Spreen grabbed the rebound off a Georgetown College missed free throw, dribbled once, then heaved the ball down court from that same free throw line…and nailed it. An 80-foot, buzzer beating 3-pointer for the improbable 79-78 win.
The shot on it’s own is amazing, but add in the exuberant call by the Lindsey Wilson sports network play-by-play announcer, who channeled his inner Gus Johnson, and the play becomes something more.
It becomes magical.
