March Madness: Top-10 Buzzer-Beaters


5. UCLA’s Tyus Edney (1995)

UCLA was ranked No. 1 in the nation and was the top seed in the West but found itself trailing Missouri, 74-73, with 4.8 seconds left in a second round contest.

Eden took the inbounds pass near the foul line and raced the length of the court. He got into the lane and flipped up a shot at the buzzer that went in and gave the Bruins a 75-74 win. UCLA went on to win its next four and claim its first National title since the John Wooden era.
