Arizona State's buzzer-beater better than Indiana's?

We all have seen the video of Christian Watford's buzzer-beating three to beat No. 1 Kentucky yesterday.

But that wasn't the most impressive buzzer-beater of the day.

The stakes were no where near the same for Arizona State as they were hosting North Dakota State, but the Sun Devils still managed to go the length of the court in just 1.8 seconds to break a 57-57 all tie. And they did it Valpo-style:

Chanse Creekmur, who was a quarterback in high school, throws the ball to Trent Lockett at the opposite foul line. Lockett tips the ball out to Carrick Felix, a 32.5% three point shooter, who rises up and buries the game-winner.

Every team in the country has some variation of this play in their arsenal. That doesn't mean it isn't pretty when executed to perfection.
