Watch: Lewis Flyers beat UMSL on three-quarters-court buzzer beater

Sunday January 17th, 2016

You have to guard Max Strus from the opposite baseline.

Strus hit a three-quarters-court buzzer beater to give the Lewis Flyers a win over the UMSL Tritons on Saturday. After tipping and intercepting an inbounds pass, Strus let fly a shot from the opposite foul line, somehow swishing home the game winner.

Strus’s shot ruined the heroics of Andreas Kefalas, who had hit a game-tying three nine seconds earlier.

The win moved the Flyers to 12–4 and dropped the Tritons to 6–10. Both teams belong to the Great Lakes Valley Conference of Division II.
