The Florida Gators hit one of the crazier shots in NCAA tournament history. Naturally twitter broke shortly afterwards.
Chris Chiozza hit a runner 3-pointer as time expired to give the Gators the win. That came after a ridiculous block from Canyon Barry to preserve the game.
The win capped a wild run of emotions in Gainesville which was captured on video.

That's one of the better buzzer beaters – the full speed stop on a dime 23-foot floater.

"Just try to get down the court as fast as I can and get a good look. They had good defense that slowed me down." — Chiozza to LaForce
