Yale stuns UConn on buzzer-beating 3, Huskies' second straight loss in exact same fashion

A game after losing to Texas on a game-winning corner three, UConn lost to Yale on almost the exact same shot.

Friday night saw an upset in Storrs, as Yale came up the road from New Haven and knocked of the Huskies 45-44 on a Jack Montague three with a second to go:

Let's put it side-by-side with Texas' shot, which was off a sideline out-of-bounds play:

UConn had won 68 straight against other teams from Connecticut, and the Bulldogs hadn't gotten a W over the Huskies since 1986. Coming off last year's national championship run, the Huskies are now 3-3, and their three wins were against Bryant, College of Charleston, and Dayton. Yale, on the other hand, moves to 8-2, and looks to be a serious contender to Harvard in the race for the Ivy League title.
