Augustana (S.D.) upsets Iowa on buzzer beater in exhibition game

Another exhibition game ended with a shocking upset as Division II program Augustana (S.D.) defeated Iowa on Friday night.

Daniel Jansen made an incredible contested shot at the buzzer to give his team the 76-74 win.

It's fitting that Jansen made the game-winning shot for Augustana. The senior forward grew up in Orange City, Iowa and played AAU basketball with a few Hawkeye players.

The win for the Vikings, who were named the preseason No. 1 in the DII coaches poll, is the second time in this week alone that a DII program has stunned a DI program. St. Thomas Aquinas cruised past St. John's on Wednesday night.

No doubt the wins for both programs will give the players a boost of confidence before the regular season starts on Nov. 13.
