No. 19 NC State defeats No. 9 Louisville with buzzer beater in OT

No. 19 North Carolina State upset No. 9 Louisville on Thursday night — and it was certainly a highlight worthy finish. 

At home with the game tied at 70 and 10 seconds left in the first overtime, NC State inbounded the ball and stalled — looking for the perfect shot.

The Wolfpack eventually saw a look as the clock winded down. Senior guard Miah Spencer dribbled to the top of the key and put up a floater that went in just as the buzzer rang. 

The entire NC State squad rushed over to Spencer to celebrate the victory. 

What a way to win for the Wolfpack. NC State is now 17-6 and 7-3 in conference play and face Georgia Tech on the road next Thursday. The loss for the Cardinals was their fifth of the season and they have a tough match ahead at No. 7 Notre Dame on Monday.
