Radford Nails Buzzer Beater To Punch A Ticket To The Big Dance
With conference tournaments in full swing, March is here and Madness has begun to ensue. Headlining today’s madness, so far, is the Radford Highlanders.
With a little over 11 seconds left, Radford had the ball at halfcourt with the score tied at 52-52. Coach Mike Jones drew up a play to create a driving lane and basket opportunity for freshman point guard Carlik Jones.
The pre-designed play broke down, leaving Carlik Jones with the ball; Carlik decided to pull up from NBA range and with the confidence of a champion, nail a buzzer-beating conference winning bucket as time expired.
