NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Georgia coach Tom Crean called Tyree Crump's 35-foot winning shot the final buzzer “a broken play,” but it was good enough to rally the Bulldogs to an 80-78 victory over host Vanderbilt on Saturday in a matchup of the bottom two teams in the Southeastern Conference.
Crump came up with a loose ball on the second of two missed free throws by Vanderbilt's Scotty Pippen Jr. with 5.1 seconds to play, headed down court and launched the shot that gave the Bulldogs (14-13, 4-10) the improbable win.
“We actually had a play called that we reviewed today, if he had made the free throws,” Crean said. “It was a broken play, but at the end of the day it's concepts. You really get a dribble per second and he didn't pull it up short.”
