Video: Aaron Craft’s near buzzer beater sends Ohio State to Sweet 16

We haven't had a true buzzer beater yet, but Aaron Craft's three pointer with .5 seconds left is the highlight of March Madness thus far. After struggling at the line in the 2nd half, Craft made the one shot that counted at the end, and led Ohio State to a 78-75 victory over Iowa State.  Jim Nantz gives us a solid call on the buzzer beater, although I'm a bit disappointed we can't teleport Gus Johnson for these moments.  At least he avoided the easy pun by calling the shot "crafty."

And even better for Aaron Craft, that shot is sure to get him a higher seed in Grantland's most hated college basketball player tournament next year.
