Northern Iowa attempted another game-winning half-court shot ... with plenty of time left

Same player, same spot, different result.

Northern Iowa created the best moment of the 2016 NCAA Tournament when Paul Jesperson hit a halfcourt shot to beat Texas at the buzzer in the round of 64. After blowing a 12-point lead in the final 43 seconds of regulation yes, you read that right UNI needed another miracle in overtime. Tie game, 5.9 seconds left, Jesperson with the ball and ..... he took another halfcourt shot, this time with PLENTY OF TIME ON THE CLOCK.

Hey, the man knows his spot. In case you were wondering, he missed badly, and we're going to double overtime.
