Stephen F. Austin Stuns VCU With Last-Second 4-Point Play (Video)

The second round of the NCAA tournament featured upsets galore, but perhaps the most dramatic of all was No. 12 seed Stephen F. Austin’s stunning victory over VCU.

The fifth-seeded Rams held a four-point lead with less than 10 seconds to play in regulation when Stephen F. Austin’s Desmond Haymon drained a 3-pointer. The bucket should have just cut VCU’s advantage to one, but Haymon was fouled on the play, sending him to the line with a chance to tie the game.

Haymon sank his free throw to force overtime, and the Lumberjacks went on to win 77-75.

Stephen F. Austin was the third No. 12 seed to topple a No. 5 in this year’s tournament, following the lead of Harvard and North Dakota State.

Check out the crucial foul in the video below.
