The talk in college basketball today is all about Tyler Griffey’s layup as time expired to give Illinois an upset win over top-ranked Indiana.
While no play last night had a bigger impact on the landscape of college basketball, Marist’s Chavaughn Lewis gave us a more impressive buzzer beater.
With Lewis’s Red Foxes trailing the host Iona Gaels by three points in overtime with time running out, he launched a missile from the other end of the court to tie the game as the clock hit zero and send last night’s MAAC (with two “A”s) contest into a second overtime.

Marist ended up winning the game 105–104.
Hitting a 3/4-court shot on an opponent’s floor was especially satisfying for Marist, who, two years ago, lost a home game to Manhattan on a similar 65-foot buzzer beater.
