Dylan Garrity’s Bomb Leads Sacramento State Hornets To Stunner Over Weber State

Dylan Garrity banged home a 75-foot heave as time expired in overtime to lead the Sacramento State Hornets to a shocking 78-75 win over the Big Sky Conference-leading Weber State Wildcats Saturday night at The Nest.

The Wildcats (11-7, 8-2 Big Sky) had a 72-71 lead with seven seconds left when they were hit with a double technical foul. Mikh McKinney sank all four free throws to give the Hornets (8-11, 4-6) a 75-72 lead.

Davion Berry tied the game with a contested 3-pointer with less than a second left. Garrity took the inbounds pass and heaved it from the Weber State 3-point line, hitting nothing but net to give the Hornets the win. It was the first back-to-back wins all season for Sacramento State, which beat Idaho State at home on Thursday.

Here are the highlights from the final minutes, including several looks at Garrity’s game-winner:
