Florida's Chris Chiozza Hits Crazy Buzzer Beater Against Wisconsin to Advance to Elite 8

After some thrilling games on Thursday night, Friday's Sweet 16 games were fairly boring in comparison. UCLA/Kentucky didn't really live up to the hype (which is not too big of a surprise since those games rarely do), so we were left with Florida/Wisconsin as the final game of the evening and one last chance to give us some madness. And boy, did it deliver.

Wisconsin was down eight in the closing minutes and they tied the game on a crazy shot with 2.5 seconds left in regulation. Then, in overtime, Florida found themselves trailing by five with under a minute remaining.  They tied the game up at 81, then the Badgers scored on two Nigel Hayes free throws to get back ahead. NO MATTER.

Florida's Chris Chiozza raced the length of the court and hit a three, much in the same style as Wisconsin's end of regulation shot was thrown up. Just like that, we've got our first buzzer beater of the NCAA Tournament. WILD.
