Watch: Gillon nails buzzer-beating 3 to knock off Duke

What a game. What a shot.

Syracuse, which is fighting for its NCAA tournament life, battled back after a tough first half against Duke in the second. After a Luke Kennard miss with the score tied and a few seconds remaining, Orange guard John Gillon got the ball. He did the rest.

Watch as Gillon races up the court, launches a 3 for the win and banks it in. Did he call glass? Probably not. It doesn’t make this shot any less special:

Gillon finished with 26 points on the evening, but that was easily his biggest bucket of the night.
