This buzzer-beater was pretty great, but the earthquake it caused is even better

Game-winning threes never get old. There's something about the unpredictability of hurling a shot toward the basket that makes time freeze for a second. Then if the shot hits, the senses come crashing down on you as though an earthquake happened.

For the Idaho State women's basketball team, that metaphor came to life. Down 49-50 against the Montana State Bobcats in the Big Sky Championships, a game-winner sealed the deal. And as it went in, the fans erupted! It almost looks like that stellar game-winner triggered an earthquake! Even the coach fell.

Now that's how you win a conference championship game.
