We’ve seen plenty of bad beats before, particularly in college basketball. But it’s hard to imagine anyone suffering a worse beat than anyone who took San Diego State in Friday’s game against Nevada.

The Aztecs lost to the Wolf Pack in overtime. Trailing by two in the final seconds, San Diego Stats’s Darrion Trammell missed a three-point shot. That seemed to end the game, with the Nevada team and all of the fans at the Lawlor Events Center celebrating the victory. Only, one team on the floor wasn’t quite ready for the game to end. That crew? The officials.

Trammell’s shot was reviewed — kind of. After the shot missed, it fell into the arms of Nevada’s Kenan Blackshear. And while that appeared to be the end of the game, it was determined upon review that the foul on Blackshear actually happened with 0.3 seconds left. So, he was sent to the line for a pair of free throws. On the surface, the free throws were insignificant. But to for any bettors with action on Nevada (-3.5) or San Diego State, they were of great importance.

Blackshear drained both free throws to secure a cover for the Wolf Pack and an all-time bad beat for anyone who took the Aztecs.

People couldn’t help but comment on the particularly tough beat.

Making the loss even worse for San Diego State bettors is that the Aztecs led late in regulation, but Nevada’s Nick Davidson made a layup with five seconds left, sending the game to overtime.
