New Mexico miracle over George Mason

Tonight, the New Mexico Lobos pulled out an incredible win over George Mason in the Paradise Jam in the Virgin Islands.  George Mason led the entire second half and with only 17 seconds remaining George Mason hit two freethrows putting them up 69-64.  Game over, right?  Not so fast.  New Mexico's talented guard Kendall Williams came down the court and let an unnecessarily long shot fly from about halfway between the center court line and the 3point line- nothing but net.  George Mason calls a time out then in the inbounds, Williams makes an incredible steal on the inbounds play, the ball ends up in high scorer, Tony Snell's hands who launches a three with 1.7 seconds remaining.  Swish!  Ridiculous.  Desperation full court shot by George Mason misses everything.  New Mexico wins 70-69 and goes on to play UConn in the title game.
