Arkansas beats Georgia Tech at the buzzer on ridiculous shot

Georgia Tech and Arkansas provided us with one of the weirdest finishes of the college basketball season to date.

The Yellow Jackets forced overtime with a run in the second half, outscoring the Razorbacks 9-2 in the final five minutes. In overtime, the scoring stopped.

For four minutes and 45 seconds.

That’s how long it took to break the deadlock, when James Banks hit a runner to give Georgia Tech their first lead since the first half.

Then this happened:

Nothing screams college basketball like a game-winning, 35-foot step-bank three getting banked in to let a team win by outscoring someone 3-2 in overtime.

I love this sport so much.
