Josh Young took the ball at the top of the key, went left on a screen from Adam Templeton, and sunk a fadeaway jumper over Saluki defender John Freeman with 1.5 seconds left to end the SIU men’s basketball team’s season.
The Salukis (15-15, 6-12 Missouri Valley Conference), who led by as many as 10 points in the second half, let a late lead slip as they fell to Drake 63-61 in the play-in game of the MVC Tournament.
Young said the shot was something every basketball player wants to make.
