March Madness: Top-10 Buzzer-Beaters


6. Florida’s Mike Miller (2000)

Locked in a dogfight with 12th-seeded Butler, No. 5 Florida looked like it was going to be sent packing before Miller stepped in.

Miller took a pass on the left wing with 2.4 seconds left. He drove to his right and got into the lane, launching a leaner at the horn that caught the front of the rim and rolled in, igniting Florida’s run to the Final Four. The Gators made it all the way to the National Title game that season before falling to Michigan State.
