WATCH: Kutztown and Rollins' sink buzzer beaters

  Jeff Merton gave Rollins the 71-69 victory with a 3 at the buzzer Thursday night.

Who doesn't love a buzzer beating shot? How about two in the same night?

Kutztown and Rollins highlighted an exciting DII basketball slate Wednesday night with game-winning shots at the buzzer.

Rollins was trailing Tampa 69-68 with just under eight seconds left on the clock in an important Sunshine State Conference battle. Jakobi Bonner was able to drive deep into Tampa's side of the court and kick it out to a wide open Jeff Merton in 3-point land.

It was a much needed win for the Tars as it moves them into a second place tie with Eckerd behind No. 11 Barry.

Kutztown found themselves tied in another big Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference showdown against Mansfield. Mansfield had a big second half, wiping out a seven-point deficit at half time and tying the game with just five seconds left. Rafiq Marshall was too much, however, as he drove the court and let lose a runner than found its way to the bottom of the net as time expired.

That has become the norm for the 11-2 Golden Bears. This past Saturday, Ethan Ridgeway hit a game winner with just 0.5 ticks left on the clock. They sure make it exciting in Kutztown.

This Saturday will showcase one of the biggest DII basketball slates of the season. If Wednesday night's action was any indication of the excitement level, we're in for one of the best basketball days of the year.
