The buzzer-beater of the year?

Cleveland State stuns Syracuse at the Carrier Dome.

The buzzer-beater of the year?

It was such a great shot that it requires four - yes, four - YouTube videos to do it justice.

The first is of the shot. The second, via Awful Announcing, is of the shot and the buildup to it. The third, via Kyle Whelliston, is footage of the shot taken from the floor by a Syracuse TV station. And the fourth, also via Awful Annoucing, is of Jim Boeheim smacking the podium microphone in disgust after the game.

What kind of momentous occasion could merit such a presentation, you ask?

Only a 3/4-court blast at the buzzer by Cleveland State guard Cedric Jackson that beat the No. 11-ranked Orange, 72-69, at the Carrier Dome.

A shoutout is also due to Schuylkill 16 voter David C., who helped me find a clip of the shot right after the game ended.

Wouldn't you rather watch this than the Eagles?

(Okay, maybe not tonight...)
