Cincinnati and Connecticut are facing off in an epic game in the American Athletic Conference Quarterfinal, and are now headed to a fourth overtime thanks to an epic 80-foot buzzer beater from Huskies guard Jalen Adams.
Check out the highlight below!
Adams received the ball with 0.8 seconds remaining following a Bearcats three from Kevin Johnson, and these two teams are so evenly matched that there seems to be no end in sight. Adams himself has 16 points in the game and is easily its hero now.
Both teams are directly on the bubble in the wide-open AAC, thanks to NCAA sanctions against SMU keeping the Mustangs out of the postseason this year, so this game is bound to be back-and-forth as it has since the beginning. Neither team is giving the other an inch, so now it’s just down to who wants to be in tomorrow’s semifinal more.
