VIDEO: Austin Rivers' Buzzer Beater Finishes Off UNC

Austin Rivers had himself one heck of a game at the Dean Dome, scoring 29 points in a one-point Duke win. It was the last three points, though, that will be replayed over and over again, and rightfully so. It was only a game-winning buzzer beater over a seven-footer that failed to close out.

But there was more to this story. There was the big lead North Carolina built in the second half; the absolute collapse over the last two minutes of the game; And Tyler Zeller's odd own-bucket, in which he tipped a Duke shot that had no chance of even hitting rim into his own basket. Oh and the ending.

Zeller had a chance to give UNC a three-point lead just moments after his own-basket, but couldn't convert his second of two free throws. Rivers brought the ball into the front court, dinked around for a bit without doing much at all, then buried a three as the horn sounded.
