Video shows USF men’s hoops caught break vs. Vermont

Turns out, there was at least one video camera in the Bob Martinez Center on Saturday night that caught the final play of the USF men’s basketball game against Vermont, which ended in a 61-59 Bulls win after a tip-in at the buzzer by the Catamounts was waved off.

Of course, the game officials didn’t have the benefit of reviewing it, but it’s probably safe to assume they wish they did.

This highlight video from the game posted on the Vermont athletics website includes the game’s final play, with a slow-motion shot around the one minute mark that clearly shows Matt Glass’ tip-in on the final play of regulation beat the buzzer, which should have sent the game into overtime.

The Bulls win is not in jeopardy, though. NCAA rules do not allow or recognize protests.

USF (1-0) returns to the court tonight against Marist (0-1) at the St. Pete Times Forum.
