Iowa wins thrilling overtime game over Temple on buzzer-beating tip-in

Iowa big man Adam Woodbury saved his team’s season with a buzzer-beating tip-in to push Iowa past Temple, 72-70.

Iowa nearly blew the game, leading by ten at one point in the second half before Temple came back, and tied the game when Temple guard Quenton DeCosey was fouled a three-point attempt and hit all three free throws with two seconds left.

In overtime, Iowa controlled the ball on the final possession. Iowa guard Mike Gesell missed a fade-away jumper for the baseline, but Temple forgot one of the basic principles of basketball: box out.
