SEWARD, Neb. -- A college in southeast Nebraska got some national TV airtime Thursday night.

Concordia University pulled off a dramatic victory over Briar Cliff on Wednesday, thanks to a full-court, buzzer-beating alley-oop.

Tristan Smith collected a full-court, baseline-to-baseline heave from Crete native Carter Kent that he then tossed into the hoop to give the Bulldogs a 74-73 win over the 22nd-ranked Chargers, and sparking the school's students to storm the court.

And now the small college in Seward is getting a little added juice as a result of the finish, appearing on SportsCenter's Top Plays overnight.

After the game, Concordia Head Coach Ben Limback and company were still struggling to process what had happened. With one second left, the Chargers’ Jaden Kleinhesselink nailed a go-ahead trey that had seemingly torn Concordia’s heart out.

But it was a night that featured the ultimate dejection-to-jubilation finish for the Bulldogs.

“You can’t put that one into words," Limback said. "It was a great, great game all the way throughout. We got a little stagnant at the end offensively and they made some tough shots. Man, what a shot by Kleinhesselink to take the lead. Coming to the bench, the guys were defeated. They poured their hearts out.

“Carter made an unbelievable pass, Tristan made an unbelievable catch and now all the sudden you win. You go from losing a heartbreaker to winning.”

The final 15 seconds set up the theatrical finish. The Chargers went on an 11-0 run that knotted the score, 70-70. Kent got the Bulldogs going again by draining an elbow jumper with 10 seconds left. The 72-70 Concordia lead was short-lived thanks to Jaden Kleinhesselink’s double-clutch three-pointer from downtown with a defender draped all over him.

All that did was set the stage for an even more improbable finish. A former star high school baseball player, Kent shuffled the baseline to his left and whirled a 90-foot in-bounds toss so precise it would be nearly impossible to duplicate. Smith, a Colorado native, did the rest, and the student body took the opportunity to celebrate.

Concordia is now 21-6 on the season. Briar Cliff is 19-9.
