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.
