ESPN highlights Gordon’s buzzer-beater
Junior point guard Mike Gordon banked an inbounds pass off a defender’s back in the final moments of the Bearcats’ Jan. 31 game and released a layup to give Binghamton a stunning 66-65 win over Stony Brook.
The unusual move got the attention of ESPN’s SportsCenter on Feb. 2. It appeared in the show’s Top 10 Plays.
The Bearcats rallied from 11 points down in the second half, thanks to Gordon and senior guards Steve Proctor and Troy Hailey. Gordon had 13 points, 10 in the second half.
