Myles Powell finished with 28 points and Myles Cale added 17 points, including the game-winning three with 9.5 seconds left, as Seton Hall landed a critical win over No. 9 Kentucky, 84-83, in overtime.

The Pirates, who replaced four starters this season, have had some promising performances during the young season but they have not quite landed the wins. They did just that on Saturday thanks to Cale, who buried this three in the extra period to move the Pirates to 6-3 on the season:

That wasn’t close to the wildest shot of the game, however.

Let’s go back to the end of regulation, which will end up being one of the craziest sequences of the season. It starts with Powell, who buried a ridiculous, step-back three over Immanuel Quickley with 1.5 seconds left to give Seton Hall a 70-67 lead:

Kentucky, of course, had an answer, as Keldon Johnson knocked down a halfcourt shot at the buzzer to force the extra frame:

This loss drops Kentucky to 7-2 on the season, with their two losses coming to the only two high-major teams that they have played this season. P.J. Washington finished with 29 points and 13 boards for Kentucky.
