Here's Video Of UNC's Anticlimactic Buzzer-Beater

UNC came back from down 17 19 against Miami this afternoon. Their only lead of the game came at the buzzer, when Kendall Marshall drove valiantly to the hoop and... dished it off to Tyler Zeller for a lay-up. Still, a game-winning buzzer-beater is a game-winning buzzer-beater, a win is a win, and so on. The Heels… » 3/11/11 2:30pm 3/11/11 2:30pm
