Nothing to see here, just another beyond halfcourt buzzer beater in double OT

On Friday night Division II conference rivals Cal Poly Pomona and Cal State Dominguez Hills met in the final game of the regular season, with playoff seeding on the line.  As you can tell from the picture the final score was 60-58 in double OT for Cal Poly, but how the two teams ended up there is simply amazing.

Down 57-55, Cal State’s Robert Willhite dropped a three-pointer to put the Toros up by one with only 0.6 seconds left on the game clock.  But that’s all the time that the Broncos needed, as junior guard Mitchel Anderson heaved up a prayer from beyond halfcourt as the buzzer sounded that found nothing but net.

Jubilation for the home team, who ends up with the second seed entering the conference tournament, and utter and total devastation and heartbreak for the CSU Dominguez Hills Toros, who were 0.6 seconds from victory, only to see it snatched away by an incredible buzzer beater in double OT.

Skip to the 2:25 mark for the final sequence of events…

Division II college basketball—where you probably didn’t know that amazing happens.
