McNeese Fans React To Buzzer Beater In Hilarious Fashion
It was a night that many McNeese fans won't soon forget. On Monday Night, the McNeese Cowboys found themselves down and out with under 13 minutes to go, but somehow, they found a way to win.
Earlier in the season, McNeese Head Coach Will Wade said “If you are going to run us over, you better kick it back in reverse and roll over us again,” which proved to be the case on Monday Night in Corpus Christi.
With less than 13 minutes left in the entire game, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi jumped up to an 18-point lead and looked like they could cruise to a win against the McNeese Cowboys and hand the Pokes their first loss in conference play, and their first loss since November. The Cowboys had different plans.
After leading McNeese 31-30 at the Halftime break, the Islanders got out to a 20-0 run to lead the Cowboys by 18 points. DJ Richards made an immediate impact scoring and providing a huge spark off the bench. Richards hit a few treys to finally get the Pokes going in the half. McNeese was able to cut it all the way down to single-digits and then it was game on.
The Cowboys struggled immensely from the free-throw line. The Cowboys shot just above 50% from the charity stripe.
With 3.2 seconds remaining, Jordan Roberts of the Islanders, who led all scorers with 18 points, fouled Mike Saunders Jr., sending him to the free-throw line.
Saunders made the first but missed the second off the front rim. Collum had a nice look at it initially but he missed, but never fail, Christian Shumate came to save the day and came skying in for the eventual game-winning tip.
Well, there were some pretty incredible reactions to the game-winning shot from Shumate, but by far my favorite one is this video of the Laughlin's. Check out how funny it is! The dog being scared is probably my favorite part!
