"The Colonels were setting up for a winning shot that would have carried them to the NCAA Division III Tournament. But a deflected pass and turnover resulted in a 65-foot heave that banked home. DePauw had a three-point victory in the final of the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Tournament. ESPN viewers around the world watched the miraculous shot for several days."
