That was Seton Hall’s Isaiah Whitehead going into the teeth of Villanova’s defense and getting the and-1 bucket. He hit the shot with 18 seconds left in the game and the made shot tied the game at 67. The Pirates ended up winning the Big East Championship 69-67, but it didn’t come without this awesome moment from coach Kevin Willard who totally lost his mind on the shot.
Awesome moment, coach! Now we can get some more of that from him in the NCAA Tournament thanks to the win that nabbed them the conference’s automatic bid. It was no Ron Hunter chair fall, but it was still a lot of fun to watch.
