The Montana State Men's Basketball team may have caused Bobcat fans more than just a little anxiety during their semi-final match up against #1 seed Southern Utah, at the Big Sky Basketball Tournament in Boise, Idaho.


The Bobcats were back and forth with the Southern Utah Thunderbirds through the entire overtime period, but with MSU leading 79-77 and 9 seconds left in overtime, Southern Utah would have a chance to tie or win the game. Then, Bobcats guard Amin Adamu stole the Thunderbirds' inbound pass and all but sealed the victory.

After stealing the pass, Adamu was fouled with 7 seconds remaining and hit 1 of 2 free throws. Final score Montana State 80, Southern Utah 77.

 

"Okay this game is insane we can all agree right?" posted the Montana State Men's Basketball via Twitter. Now, the Treasure State prepares for what could be an epic battle in the Championship, with the Griz being a possible opponent in the final.
