Huddersfield Heat’s Nick Crowder Beats Ipswich at the Buzzer!

There was drama in Ipswich on Saturday as Huddersfield Heat ended up coming away with a huge 80-77 win after Nick Crowder hit a three at the buzzer – or was it?

With 13.5 seconds left in the game and the score tied at 77, Salva Mendez advanced the ball, penetrated to the hoop and then dished to a wide open Crowder who splashed the three from the wing, with what appears to be about a second left (he has time to turnaround and start celebrating before the buzzer sounds).

Watch as you can see Ipswich Head Coach Nick Drane immediately calling for a timeout when the ball goes through the hoop…before the buzzer then goes off.

Drane, however, refuses to look at what could have been.

“I like to think about the other thirty-nine minutes and forty five seconds rather than focus on the last shot or whether or not there was still time on the clock,” he said.

“We made some really basic mistakes today – if our u13’s shot 47% from the foul line or turned the ball over 23 times, I would be asking questions, so for our men’s team to make those types of mistakes in a game of this importance means we need to be almost perfect in all other areas if we were going to win today”.

So what do you think? Game over or should Ipswich have had one more shot at it?
