Watch Texas' Timmy Allen hit a half-court, buzzer-beater before halftime vs. Xavier
After grabbing a defensive rebound, Texas' Timmy Allen hurried up the court with three seconds left and put up a shot from half-court.
Allen's shot bounced off the backboard and in, giving the Longhorns a 42-25 at halftime. The shot comes after Marcus Carr hit a buzzer-beater of his own at halftime vs. Penn State in the Longhorns' previous NCAA Tournament game.

And if you think you loved this at home, the Texas fans in Texas were estatic.
We were interviewing Texas coach David Pierce during this play. I know this because a loud cheer erupted from the @OccupyLF folks while DP was talking about Zane Morehouse’s performance.
“I thought there was something up,” Pierce said after we told him what happened. #HookEm https://t.co/F5azdQXVKe
