Maine beats Wagner at the buzzer on this gorgeous out of bounds play (VIDEO)


Out of bounds plays in basketball are like special teams in football: People rarely think about them, but they quite often end up making the difference in a game.

On Tuesday night, Maine won their game against Wagner thanks to a baseline out of bounds play — also known as a BLOB, sidelines out of bounds plays are SLOBs — drawn up by head coach Bob Walsh. They don’t get much better than this:

The short jumper by Zarko Valjarevic gave the Black Bears an 82-81 overtime win and it also gave Walsh his first career Division I victory after many successful years at the Division III level.
