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.

Joe Boozell has been a college basketball writer for NCAA.com since 2015. His work has also appeared in Bleacher Report, FOXSports.com and NBA.com. Joe’s claim to fame since joining NCAA.com: he’s predicted the correct national championship game twice… and picked the wrong winner both times. Growing up, Joe squared off against both Anthony Davis and Frank Kaminsky in the Chicagoland basketball scene. You can imagine how that went.
