Cameron Ridley Putback at the Buzzer Lifts Texas Over Arizona State


Cameron Ridley of Texas rebounded a brick in the final seconds, and made a layup at the buzzer as Texas nipped Arizona State, 87-85 in a thrilling first round victory.

The Longhorns advanced to play Michigan Saturday.

For Arizona State, it’s a devastating loss, as the Sun Devils erased a 10-point deficit in the second half to briefly take a late lead in the final minutes. But Ridley, who dominated inside – 17 points, 12 rebounds, four blocks – was able to barely get his final shot over the outstretched arm of 7-footer Jordan Bachynski, who himself had a great game with 25 points.
