Video: VMI Hits 3 Buzzer-Beaters, Wins in 4 OTs

February 6th, 2014| by

Three times Wednesday night, Gardner-Webb had a chance to close out a win against VMI with a defensive stop in the final seconds. Three times, VMI came up with a buzzer-beater to extend the game.

Here’s how it happened:

  • 2nd Half: Brian Brown banks in a 3-pointer as time expires to tie the score at 73-all.
  • 2nd OT: D.J. Covington rims in a short jumper from the Lane off an inbounds play as time expires to tie the score at 88-all.
  • 3rd OT: With 1.7 seconds remaining, VMI manages to inbound the ball from the opposite end of the court and get it to Tim Marshall in time for a game-tying layup as time expires to make it 97-all.

VMI finally pulled away in the fourth OT for a 108-104 win that was probably a dream for them – and a nightmare for Gardner-Webb.
