Belmont Knocks Off Murray State In Bonkers OVC Finale

Belmont earned this year's first NCAA tournament invite when the Bruins ended the nation's second-longest win streak in knocking off Murray State via a Taylor Barnette three-pointer with four seconds remaining. The shot topped a madcap final three minutes in which Belmont lost two leads and found themselves down to the 25th-ranked Racers with only ten seconds left. It wasted a heroic Cameron Payne performance, and likely renders Murray State—which went undefeated in the Ohio Valley Conference regular season—left out of March Madness.

Here's a quick reel of those final minutes, in what might have been the best college basketball game of the season.
