Stephen Curry’s magic appears to be spreading. Watch as this player for the Wisconsin Badgers pulls off an outrageous three-point buzzer beater in a NCAA tournament game against the Xavier Musketeers.
In the United States, college basketball is almost as big as the NBA – particularly when it gets to the business end of the NCAA tournament – officially dubbed ‘March Madness’.
Bronson Koenig was the man responsible for sending Wisconsin through to the round of 16 after sinking their opponents with this incredible three-point shot right at the final buzzer:

Asked how he pulled it off, Koenig had this to say:

It’s certainly a shot that Curry would be proud of, but as great as it was, some of the reactions were even greater.
Here’s former Wisconsin star – and current Charlotte Hornets player – Frank Kaminsky’s reaction while watching the game on TV:
Spare a thought for Xavier fans, though. Comedian Bill Murray is one of their staunch supporters, and was at the game to lend his support:

Unfortunately, the game didn’t go to plan for his team. Here’s Murray’s stunned reaction to Koenig’s winning shot:
