Northern Iowa's buzzer-beater: The radio call

UNI vs. UT: P. Jesperson replays

If you haven't seen the amazing half-court buzzer-beater that Northern Iowa's Paul Jesperson banked in Friday night to beat Texas, it's worth watching over and over. Check out the video above for multiple angles.

But the radio call is just as good. Listen here as Westwood One's Tom McCarthy calls the final seconds leading up to Jesperson's Hail Mary heave, along with P.J. Carlesimo.

The stunned silence, followed by "All you can say is .... WOW!" When the finish is good enough to leave the announcers speechless, that's something.

Northern Iowa led by as many as 15 points in the second half before Texas rallied. Jesperson made 4-of-7 3-pointers on the night, but none as big as the one with time running out in regulation.

Northern Iowa advances to play Texas A&M on Sunday in the round of 32.
