Elon University, a small Division I school located in North Carolina, erased an eight-point deficit to Kennesaw State with only 16 seconds remaining in the game.

The run for the Elon Phoenix began with a Luke Eddy layup, that was followed with a three-point shot from Elon player Dainan Swoope. The game then hit 89-86 with 4.8 seconds left after a pair of missed free-throws from Kennesaw State.

Elon then stole the ensuing inbounds pass, and Eddy drew a foul resulting in him making all three free-throw attempts.


Elon won the game 103-93, capping off one of the more incredible basketball finishes in recent history. (RELATED: Former Duke, NBA Point Guard Arrested For ‘Extreme DUI’)
