College basketball: UNLV, Nevada trade last-second 3s to force overtime

  UNLV's Patrick McCaw (22) hit a game-tying 3-pointer to force overtime, where UNLV beat Nevada, 102-91.

In one of the most wild five-second stretches you'll ever see in college basketball, Nevada and UNLV hit 3-pointers in the final moments of regulation to send Saturday night's game to overtime.

Tied at 77, Nevada strolled up the court with seven ticks on the clock, looking to score the final bucket to beat the Runnin' Rebels. Marqueze Coleman buried a deep 3 with 2.4 seconds left in what looked like a game-winner, but there was just enough time on the clock for UNLV's Patrick McCaw to sink a 3-pointer of his own as the buzzer sounded to force overtime.

UNLV used the momentum to beat Nevada in overtime, 102-91. McCaw finished the game with 25 points for UNLV. Nevada's Coleman scored 31.

That shot wasn't the first game-tying buzzer-beater for McCaw. Last season, McCaw sent another game into overtime with a last-second floater against Utah State on Jan. 24, a game UNLV also won.
