Basketball fans love wild finishes.

And Minnesota State-Moorhead fans had one they won't forget Saturday night in Aberdeen, South Dakota, as the Dragons defeated Northern State on a dramatic buzzer-beater by Tanner Kretchman.

Kretchman, a junior and a Fargo, North Dakota, native had 19 points including three 3-pointers in the game – none bigger than the game-winner.

The shot saved what could have been a very tough loss for the Dragons. MSUM led by 23 near the end of the first half, before Northern State rallied to take a two-point lead at 92-90 with 2.1 seconds to go.

But that's when Kretchman came through for the Dragons draining a 35-footer at the buzzer to win it.
