Oklahoma State hits meaningless three-pointer at buzzer to pull off backdoor cover
Down four at the end of regulation on Friday, Oklahoma State guard Jawun Evans hit a three-pointer at the buzzer, cutting Michigan's lead in the NCAA tournament round of 64 to one point.
It didn't matter, of course: The game was over, with Michigan advancing to the round of 32 with a 92-91 victory.
But if you were invested in Friday's result for certain financial reasons, that three-pointer mattered. A lot.
Michigan was favored by 2.5 points, so Oklahoma State's last-gasp three covered the spread. So if you had Oklahoma State +2.5, you have Jawun Evans to thank. Here's the shot.
Some fans, of course, came out on the wrong side of OSU's backdoor cover.
I just lost my bet and a 7 team parlay I had going by that garbage time meaningless 3 by OSU at the buzzer. 🙄🙄🙄— Chad in the 'Boro (@CheedroFriend) March 17, 2017
I feel very defeated after that cover by OSU— Keith McNierney (@KeithMcN21) March 17, 2017
My brother is in Vegas right now. He bet on Michigan -2.5... they only won by one. LMAOOOO. Never bet on the enemy, bro.— Joanne (@vanilla_rice) March 17, 2017
