A sellout crowd at the Barn saw a pulsating game between the No. 12 Gophers and No. 10 Miami – and a unique shot from Amir Coffey.

The sophomore guard found himself sitting on the floor when the rebound to his own shot fell into his lap.

That didn't stop him shooting again – this time successfully.

Unfortunately the Gophers fell short, suffering their first loss of the season 86-81.
