Paige Beebe’s goal lands No. 1 on SportsCenter’s Top 10

Feb. 12—BEMIDJI — There’s good, and then there’s SportsCenter Top 10 good.

Bemidji State senior Paige Beebe proved to be the latter, as her miraculous game-winning goal on Friday night took the No. 1 spot on SportsCenter’s Top 10 plays for the day.

. From her defensive circle, Beebe fired into an empty net on the other side of the ice and sent her team into pandemonium.

The Buckeyes had pulled their goalie with 14 seconds left in pursuit of a regulation win in attempt to maximize their points in the race for the WCHA regular season title.

It almost worked, but BSU goaltender Kerigan Dowhy also produced an incredible, no-look kick save that turned into an assist on Beebe’s goal. Dowhy even received a shoutout during the Top 10 spot

Vanderbilt’s Scotty Pippen Jr. hits three pointer, lands on SportsCenter

Between an NHL alley-oop play and a Brooklyn Nets comeback win in the NBA, there’s a highlight on the SportsCenter Twitter account featuring Vanderbilt‘s Scotty Pippen Jr.

Pippen hit a 3-point shot at the buzzer to tie the game against Temple University.

Perhaps, the more shocking part is that Pippen wasn’t even at full health and head coach Jerry Stackhouse wasn’t sure he’d play on Tuesday night.

“He was throwing up and had it going out of both ends,” Stackhouse said after the game. “I wasn’t even sure if he was gonna go back into the game.”

For teammate Jordan Wright, there was no doubt when the ball left Pippen’s hands.

“We work on it all the time,” Wright said in a postgame interview. “I knew it was going in.”

Vanderbilt went on to lose, 72-68, to Temple. 

But the buzzer beater grabbed the attention of basketball twitter.

Just ask N.C. State, which was both Saturday in knocking off No. 9 Clemson 27-21 in double overtime and handing the Tigers their second loss in four weeks. The result also blew the race for the ACC title wide open.

N.C. State made a defensive stop on fourth-and-5 in the second OT to seal the game and drop Clemson to 2-2 (1-1 ACC) on the season.

ESPN got rid of longtime anchor and host Kenny Mayne back in May in what the television personality deemed a “salary cap casualty.” Thankfully, Mayne has not had trouble finding work since.

In his introductory video this afternoon, he shared that he served as an usher at Caesars during the Muhammad Ali-Larry Holmes fight back in 1980.

At Caesars, Mayne will have the chance to reunite with former ESPN colleague Trey Wingo, who welcomed his buddy to the fold on Twitter this afternoon.
