WATCH: IU's Blackmon Jr. hits buzzer-beating 3 to top Penn State

  James Blackmon Jr. scored 17 points in the Hoosiers' thrilling victory Wednesday.

Indiana had just blown a commanding 13-point lead with five minutes to go in regulation and seemed destined to go to overtime on the road against Penn State Wednesday night.

Then this happened: 

Right after the Nittany Lions tied the game at 75-75 with 4.6 seconds on the clock, Hoosiers point guard James Blackmon Jr. took the inbound pass, flew down the court and launched a buzzer-beating 3-pointer with a hand in his face. As Blackmon fell to the ground and slid into Indiana's bench area, the shot fell through the back of the net to give the Hoosiers the 78-75 victory in Happy Valley.

Blackmon finished with 17 points and five 3s on the day as Indiana picked up its second-straight win since falling out of the AP Top 25 ranks.
