Buzzer Beater Lifts UAB to Last Second Win Over Southern

UAB Blazers

If a team were going to pull off a last second, superhuman buzzer beater in overtime, what better night to do it than 'Super Hero Night' on their home court? 

That's exactly what transpired on Sunday evening in Bartow Arena for the UAB Blazers (6-5), as they walk away with a 75-74 win over Southern (4-7). 

The Jaguars took a 74-73 lead with just 0:07 left in overtime. In the final seconds, UAB F Chris Cokley managed to tip in a last second basket just before time expired, sending the crowd into a frenzy. 

Cokley is leading the Blazers in scoring this season with 12.4 points per game, and ranks 21st in Conference USA in scoring. 

UAB will need to regroup quickly, as they make their way to Austin, TX to face the Texas Longhorns (5-5) this Wednesday night in primetime.
