It’s been a tough season for Howie Dickenman’s Central Connecticut State Blue Devils, as they entered Saturday night’s home game against Wagner with a 2-18 record. CCSU appeared to be headed to overtime, with Wagner’s Marcus Burton hitting a three-pointer to tie the game up at 50. Luckily for the Blue Devils there was still a second left on the clock and they took full advantage of the opportunity.

Faronte Drakeford hit teammate Brandon Peel with an accurate 65-foot inbounds pass, which Peel caught and released a turnaround three-pointer that fell after time expired. Peel finished the game with 17 points, 13 rebounds and five blocked shots as CCSU picked up its first conference win of the season.

This is how Wagner tied the game:
