Youngstown State snuck past the No. 1 seed in the Horizon League quarterfinals when they knocked off Oakland at the buzzer, 81-80, on this play:

Cameron Morse, who had 34 points, seven boards and four assists before this play, found Jon Kauffman, who finished with 22 points and 10 boards on the night, for a WIDE OPEN layup at the buzzer.

Which begs the question … what in the world is Oakland doing?

I want to credit the Penguins for a great playcall but that’s really hard to do with the way Oakland defended here. There are 3.3 seconds left. Why are four guys running at the ball-handler?

We do need to give credit to Morse, however. That’s a heads-up play knowing how much time he had left and getting the pass there for the win.
