Upsets make college basketball the thrilling sport it is. Upsets on a miraculous buzzer-beater take it to another level.

Purchase basketball hosted the No. 14 Wesleyan Cardinals. Michael Soffer came out on fire from the get go. He finished the night 6-for-8 from 3-point land, his last 3-pointer sealing the deal in the Panthers 71-68 upset.

Wesleyan’s Jordan Bonner tied the game with six tenths of a second left on the clock. Deshawn Cann did his best Tom Brady impersonation, taking the inbound pass and football throwing it to Soffer in stride. Soffer took the pass and immediately chucked i towards the basket.

The rest, as they say, is history.

The play earned ESPN’s top play of the night and deserving so. Soffer finished with 23 points and moved the Panthers to 10-6 on the season. It was their first victory over a ranked team this season.
