Former Arizona State star Jermaine Marshall hit an incredibly clutch game-tying layup at the buzzer in the Greek League playoffs on Sunday...for the wrong team.

Kifisia led Aris 95–93 in the closing seconds, and was trying to run out the clock and avoid getting fouled when Marshall decided to lay the ball in his own basket and send it to overtime, tied 95–95. 

The basket ended up costing Kifisia the game, as they fell 108–103 in the extra session.

Don’t do that, kids.
