Florida Gulf Coast Pulled Off the Play of the Year (But it Didn’t Count)

But perhaps some of Florida Gulf Coast's magic has worn off. 

Last night, they came painfully close to pulling off one of the better buzzer-beaters in recent basketball history. 

Down by two points to South Florida with .3 seconds remaining, the Eagles devised this tremendous full-court play for Chase Fieler. His shot appeared to be released in time, but was disallowed since NCAA rules prohibit this type of shot to be completed in such a short time frame.
