Missouri State Beats Illinois State On Wild Half-Court Shot

The Bears' Keandre Cook knocked the ball free and it was knocked toward center court where nine of the 10 players on the court converged on the ball (like a little kid soccer game).

"You get struck by lightning once it feels weird", Illinois State coach Dan Muller told the Pantagraph. The tight-knit battle ended in absurd fashion. The ball swooped through, Missouri State prevailed 66-65, and within seconds, his whole team had joined him in the middle of the court to celebrate.

Up two with 7.8 seconds remaining, Illinois State had to inbound the ball under its own basket.

The inbounds pass was never completed, leading to the ball dribbling to midcourt, where an epic scramble for a loose ball took place.

But it can try to help the union and school district reach a deal and can require them participate in a fact-finding process. It's the latest action in a wave of teacher activism since last spring, when teachers walked off the job in West Virginia.

Missouri State senior Jarred Dixon came up with the ball and launched it from half-court, banking it in for the miracle win.

That's a heartbreaking defeat for Illinois State, but there is one consolation prize.

Perhaps the Redbirds will have their chance at revenge during the postseason.
