Fantastic Finishes

Here are two of the most amazing finishes you'll ever see, one from college, one from the NBA. The first is from Saturday's NCAA Division II championship game between Winona State and Barton College. The Warriors of Winona State are the defending champs, undefeated on the season at 35-0, and are carrying a 57-game winning streak into the game. The Bulldogs of Barton College, representing a campus of fewer than 1000 students, come into the game with a record of 30-5, and a 20-game winning streak of their own. We pick up the action with Winona State's Zach Malvik at the line, trying to push the Winona State's lead to 7 points with 45 seconds left. Barton's 5'10" senior guard Anthony Atkins, playing his final game for his hometown (Wilson, NC) Bulldogs, leaves it all on the court:

Now on to the NBA highlight, from last night's action. The visiting Denver Nuggets have the ball and a three-point lead over the Detroit Pistons with 1.5 seconds left in the 4th quarter. The Nuggets are inbounding the ball on their own half of the court.

That shot sent the game into overtime, where the Pistons would prevail, 113-109.
