Watch: Dartmouth defeats Yale on last-second layup

Sunday March 8th, 2015

Dartmouth defeated Yale on Saturday after a last-second layup off an inbounds pass. The win forces a one-game playoff for the Ivy League regular-season championship between Yale and Harvard.

With two seconds remaining and Yale (22-9) leading 58-57, Dartmouth (14-14) inbounded the ball from under its basket. Senior forward Gabas Maldunas came around a screen and caught the inbound lob from John Golden before finishing the layup with 0.5 seconds remaining.

Maldunas was fouled on the play and missed the free throw, but Yale did not have enough time to score.

Here is the TV broadcast view of the play:
