Video: American loses on buzzer beater

By Dan Steinberg


Here's how American's bid to get to the Patriot League final ended, via The Post:

[Vlad] Moldoveanu had a chance to put the game away with 11 seconds remaining in the second overtime and American leading, 71-70, but his wide open shot from the left corner hit the rim and bounced out of bounds. Lafayette got the ball to Tony Johnson who flew up the court before finding Jim Mower on the left wing in front of the Leopards' bench. As Mower sank the three-point basket with two seconds remaining, the Lafayette bench and the Leopards' fans erupted.

If you zoom ahead to the :35 point of this video, you can see for yourself. They erupted.

Tough way to go out for the Eagles, who were up six in double overtime. I mean, Lafayette's coach said he was already preparing his post-game speech, telling his players how much he loved them.

You know, this was the one day I was excited that the Post generally forgets to cover American University basketball.

Thanks for the depressing reminder.
