March Madness: Top-10 Buzzer-Beaters

NCAA

8. Connecticut’s Tate George (1990)

The Huskies led their regional semifinal against Clemson by as many as 19 but were down one with under two seconds to play after a 3-pointer by David Young.

UConn’s Scott Burrell launched a full-court pass to George, who hit a turnaround jumper from about 15-feet at the buzzer for a 71-70 victory. The euphoria of George’s last-second heroics was short-lived however as UConn was knocked out of the tournament by Duke in the regional final on a buzzer-beater by Christian Laettner.
