The NCAA March Madness basketball tournament is one of the most exciting sporting events of the year both for casual sports fans and heavy sports gamblers. But those who didn’t have money on the line during Thursday night’s game between the top-seeded Alabama Crimson Tide and No. 16 seed Texas A&M Corpus Christi missed an absolutely heroic buzzer-beater.

Alabama’s victory in the game was never really in doubt. The Crimson Tide entered the contest as massive favorites and controlled the game from start to finish. But there was one thing that came down to the wire: whether or not the Tide would cover the massive 22-point spread.

For a moment, it looked like Alabama was indeed going to cover with a 24-point victory over Texas A&M Corpus Christi as the Islanders appeared to be just dribbling out the clock. But then, senior guard Ross Williams demanded the ball, dribbled to the wing and shot a contested three-pointer as time expired.

“That kid on Corpus Christi demanding the ball to cover the spread was pure March,” Big Cat of Bartsool sports said in a tweet.

While the shot was inconsequential to the result of the game itself, it was absolutely massive for those who bet on the game as Williams’ late three-pointer meant that Corpus Christi covered the spread.

It was a massive moment for the sports betting world and people had plenty to say about it.

They don’t call it “March Madness” for nothing.
