Mississippi Valley State’s Jordan Washington scored a game winning 3-point shot at the buzzer to beat Jackson State (7-13, 3-5) Saturday night 69-66 at the Leflore County Civic Center in Greenwood, MS.
The Delta Devils (7-14, 3-5) trailed by as much as 11 points in the second half, before reducing the deficient down to five with 24 seconds remaining in the game. With the score tied at 66 and 6-seconds remaining in the game, Anthony McDonald missed on a 3-point shot that was eventually rebounded by Washington for the game winning shot.
“I’m looking at the ball and it was like the ball was moving in slow motion,” said MVSU head coach Chico Potts after the game. “I could spell ‘Spalding’ [on the ball] as its rotating so slow. [The ball] hits backboard, bucket.”
