Down by three against Minot State with three seconds to play, Minnesota State-Mankato pulled off an incredible play at the buzzer on Saturday. 

Minnesota State senior Chris Hendrix threw a football-like pass the length of the court, and sophomore Kevin Krieger made a leaping catch over a defender, spun and took one dribble before launching a game-tying corner 3-pointer at the buzzer. 

The incredible play tied the score 75-75 and Minnesota State went on to win 87-79 in overtime to advance to the semifinals of the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) Tournament

Minnesota State will play Northern State in the semifinals on Monday. The other semifinal will be between Southwest Minnesota State and St. Cloud State or the University of Sioux Falls. 

Definitely look for Krieger's play on SportsCenter Saturday night or Sunday morning.
