2011 NCAA Tournament, First Round Day One: Morehead State Upsets Louisville With Buzzer Beater Three-Pointer

The 2011 NCAA tournament is off to a fast start as the upsets and buzzer beaters are coming at a quick pace. This first day of the first round is not even half finished and we’ve had several buzzer beaters, or at least late second shots. The biggest of the day so far has to be Morehead State’s late three to defeat the Louisville Cardinals 62-61.

The Eagles trailed Louisville 61-59 with less than ten seconds to play and Demonte Harper dribbling out the clock near halfcourt. With eight seconds remaining, Harper started moving towards the three point line. He crossed over to drive the defender back just a step, which freed Harper up to pull up for a three at the three point line. The shot hit nothing but net as Bill Raftery went bananas. You can view video of the shot down below.

The victory is the first NCAA tournament victory for Morehead State since 1984 and advances them to a second round matchup with the winner of Richmond and Vanderbilt. The Spiders lead 64-63 in a back and forth affair that looks to be coming down to the wire. Follow all of our coverage in our 2011 NCAA Tournament stream.
