Sunday afternoon the CP3 All-Stars and St. Louis Eagles met in the semifinals of the EYBL Finals at the Nike Peach Jam in North Augusta, South Carolina, with the headliners being 2016 prospects Harry Giles (CP3) and Jayson Tatum (St. Louis Eagles). Of course there was also the matter of Tatum making his college decision following the game, as he chose Duke on national television.

While those were the major plots in this one, there was also the game itself. CP3 All-Stars led by double figures for a significant stretch of the game, with the Eagles making a furious comeback in the second half. But down by two with 4.8 seconds remaining the Eagles still needed a shot to either send the game into overtime or win it.

With Tatum being taken away the ball wound up in the hands of 2016 guard Jordan Barnes, who took off down the court and hit a double-clutch three-pointer from the right elbow as time expired to give the Eagles a 74-73 win. Above is video of the shot, as filmed by NextUpRecruits.

That was Barnes’ second game-winning shot of the weekend, and as a result the Eagles advanced to take on the Georgia Stars in the title game (which was won by the Stars). According to Rivals.com, the Christian Brothers College HS (St. Louis) guard holds offers from Arkansas State, Indiana State, IUPUI, Missouri State and South Alabama.

Division III Piedmont College wins on a 40-foot buzzer-beater (VIDEO)

There were some insane buzzer-beaters in college basketball over the weekend. N.C. State toppled Georgia Tech for a road win thanks to Trevor Lacey’s running 3-pointer and the end of the Division II Drury and Quincy game was one of the best finishes we’ll see in a college basketball game all season.

Piedmont College represented the Division III ranks in the buzzer-beater category this weekend as sophomore guard Trae Gaines hit an unlikely game-winning, buzzer-beater after a full-court inbound pass with 2.8 seconds left. Gaines banked in a 40-foot, 3-pointer to give Piedmont a 63-61 win over Maryville.

The end of the Division II Drury/Quincy game is one of the best college basketball finishes of the year (VIDEO)


One of the best finishes to a college basketball game this season occurred on Saturday as Drury outlasted Quincy for a 90-88 overtime win.

Quincy received a go-ahead 3-pointer from Godson Eneogwe with 1.6 seconds left to put them ahead 88-87 in overtime, but Drury had an answer from guard Kameron Bundy.

On the ensuing possession, Bundy received an inbound pass near mid-court, took two dribbles and buried a buzzer-beating 3-pointer to give the Panthers a 90-88 win.

Some have questioned how Bundy could dribble two times and release a shot with 1.6 seconds left. Thanks to a tip from reader Dante Rebori, here’s video of the game’s telecast, which includes the running clock.
