VIDEO: Tyler Zeller's Buzzer Beater To Beat Miami In 2011 ACC Tournament


The North Carolina Tar Heels led just one time in their 64-62 ACC Tournament quarterfinal win over Miami. Luckily for them, it was the final score. Tyler Zeller's buzzer-beater gave the Tar Heels the lead for the very first time in the entire game and completed a comeback from a 16-point second half deficit.

As you can see on this play, Zeller barely got the shot off before the buzzer sounded. Kendall Marshall penetrated into the lane and drew two Miami defenders before dropping the ball off to Zeller for the lefty layup just in the nick of time. The play occurred after Adrian Thomas fumbled a pass on the previous Miami possession. After the Hurricanes committed their two fouls to give, six seconds remained on the clock for Marshall to drive and Zeller to hit the game-winner.

It's a fitting ending for Miami in the way after its rally to defeat Virginia in the first round on Thursday. For North Carolina, it was far too close for comfort, but at least they won the game.
