BUZZER BEATER: Brogdon's 3 Silences Pitt's Oakland Zoo, Big Win For Virginia

Sometimes things that don't work in practice some how do in a game.

Virginia head coach Tony Bennett installed a new play for end of game situations and wasn't that thrilled with it.

The Cavaliers tried it at the end of the game against Pittsburgh Sunday afternoon.  Malcolm Brogdon took the shot and hit it at the buzzer.

(Thanks ESPN) Note: Brogdon's game winner occurs at :54.

"We actually didn’t run the play right." Brogdon said.  "It wasn’t a triple-pop; we ran a quadruple-pop. We ran four screens instead of three. It’s basically a play for me to come up and shoot the three. We executed it really well. I haven’t hit it one time in practice all year. We’ve been practicing it all the time and I hit it today.”

"It’s funny we run it a lot in practice, but we never make it in practice." Virginia head coach Tony Bennett said. "I would rather make it the game than in practice."

"The kid hit a tough shot," Pitt coach Jamie Dixon said. "He was going sideways and hit it from 25 feet. He made the play."

"(Malcolm Brogdon) hit a good shot." Pitt head coach Jamie Dixon said.  "It was a deep shot, it was a deep three.  We could have guarded it better, but we didn’t.  And we give him credit."

Brogdon led the Cavaliers with 16 points.
