Most buzzer beaters are personal with me but this one was. It involved Bradley’s Walt Lemon, Jr. banking home a three pointer at the buzzer to defeat my alma mater, Missouri State 69-66.Here’s the game winner, (Thanks KYTV, Springfield, MO)
“I was actually going to pass it because I thought they would double team me.” Lemon said. “But they retreated and I just shot it. I didn’t know what to think but I was just glad it went it.”“We knew Lemon would probably get it and we wanted to give a bunch of help on him and not let him get all the way to the rim,” Missouri State head coach Paul Lusk said. “We hit a big shot. They hit a bigger one.”
Lemon finished with 20 points to lead the Braves in scoring.
