This Miracle Half-Court Shot Gave Northern Iowa A Major Upset

By

Many predicted that no. 11 seed Northern Iowa would pull off a major upset against Texas on Friday night. Few could've predicted that the Panthers would win the game like this.

With the final seconds winding down, UNI's Paul Jesperson put up a prayer of a half-court heave to seal an electric 75-72 win against the no. 6 seeded Longhorns.

Simply put, it was a miraculous buzzer-beater.

Between this medium-sized upset, West Virginia's defeat and the still-shocking loss of Michigan State, it's safe to say that most brackets in America are on life support after another vintage March Madness day.

You gotta love it.
