Is this the worst gambling bad beat ever?

Iona bad beat


The ending of last night’s Iona-Manhattan game left many gamblers with an all-time bad beat story. Down by eight with only a second to play, Manhattan (+4) came down the court and drilled a three-pointer at the buzzer. Iona faithful rushed the court in ecstasy, celebrating their birth in the dance.

There was one problem however—the game wasn’t over. An enthusiastic timekeeper stopped the clock with mere fractions of a second left. Refs convened and issued Iona a technical foul—meaningless to the outcome of a game but devastating to Iona bettors.

Manhattan’s Donovan Kates stepped to the line and calmly hit both free throws, making the score 60-57. And that folks is why you don’t dance with the devil in the pale moonlight.
