It appeared the Indiana Hoosiers were going to coast to victory vs Penn State on Wednesday night at Bryce Jordan Center, as they had a lead as high as 14 points in the final nine minutes, and an eight-point lead with just over a minute left.

But the Nittany Lions made a furious comeback and tied the game 75-75 on a pair of Lamar Stevens free throws with four seconds left. Penn State had to feel great about their chances should the game get to overtime with all of the momentum they had going in their home arena. However, Indiana’s James Blackmon Jr. prevented Penn State from getting that chance.

Watch the star junior guard drain a three at the buzzer to save Indiana:

That could be even a season-saving shot for Indiana (13-7). This would’ve been a very devastating loss after the big lead they had late, and a loss would’ve dropped them to 2-4 in Big Ten play. Instead, it’s a nice road victory and keeps them right in the thick of things in the Big Ten standings.
