Murray State wins it at the buzzer

3/18/2010

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Danero Thomas hit a jumper at the buzzer to lift No. 13-seeded Murray State to a 66-65 victory over No. 4-seeded Vanderbilt.

The Racers ran off to the other end of the court, where they piled onto the senior forward after he had took a dribble, stepped back and knocked down the shot.

Murray State earned its 31st victory of the season in a win that was only an upset on paper for the Ohio Valley champions who are now winners of 22 of their last 23 games.

Isacc Miles scored 17 points to lead Murray State, who were nearly finished when B.J. Jenkins saw his 3-pointer come up short off the rim with 4.2 seconds, but the Racers got the ball back.

Vanderbilt has now lost consecutive NCAA tournament games to No. 13 seeds. The Commodores were led by Brad Tinsley's 13 points, but were hampered by finishing only 17-of-29 from the free throw line.
