Watch: Virginia denied victory as go-ahead layup gets stuck on rim

Virginia is wondering how that happen?

 

Just how in the world did that happen?

That’s the thinking of all Virginia fans, as London Perrantes drove to the lane for the potential go-ahead bucket only to see the ball rim out and get stuck on the back of the rim with 21.9 seconds remaining in overtime. The game was tied at 68-68.

The ball getting stuck on the rim forced a jump ball. The possession arrow awarded Virginia Tech possession, killing Virginia’s best shot at victory. The game went into double overtime. The Hokies would pull off the upset victory 80-78 in Blacksburg.

Twitter’s reaction was just as crazy as the shot getting stuck.

For No. 12 Virginia they were victims of a “tough bounce,” but then again they led by 14 points at halftime.
