Video: Pitt Hits Very Close Buzzer Beater At Clemson To Force Overtime
Pitt and Clemson are embroiled in an important game at Littlejohn Coliseum, and things aren’t over after the final buzzer. With under two seconds left and Clemson leading 67-65, the Panthers forced a turnover on the inbounds pass, which rolled right to Panther Josh Newkirk, who hit the game-tying jumper.
Based on the video, it is almost impossible to tell whether or not the ball was still on Newkirk’s fingertips when the backboard lit up, but after seeing a number of replays, the referees decided to count the basket.
Many Clemson fans left Littlejohn thinking the Tigers had won. They may want to get back to their seats if they can.
