Not to relive the pain, but here is the video of the UMass tip in at the buzzer to beat the Friars 77-75 in the first round of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off.
Right before this, the Friars had the ball with about 40 seconds left. LaDontae Henton got called for a highly questionable charge (although it wasn’t the best play by Henton, who had an overall pretty terrible game), allowing the Minuteman to hold for the final shot.
The short handed Friars had an overall gutsy performance, taking a 5 point lead late into the game after being down by as many as 11 in the first half. Bryce Cotton and Kadeem Batts were generally fantastic, and it was such a tough way to lose after playing so hard against all the odds.
PC will play Penn State at 7:30 tomorrow night.
