Tony Carr was looking to make a play with Penn State trailing by one point and the clock winding down Friday night at Madison Square Garden.
The Penn State guard could have launched a shot, but instead he found Josh Reaves cutting to the rim for a dunk with 3.1 seconds left to lift No. 7-seed Penn State to a 69-68 win over No. 2-seed Ohio State at the Big Ten tournament.
“I was definitely surprised how open he was,” Carr said. “He was wide open, but I guess that’s what happens when it’s a mismatch and you got to pay some extra attention to the ball.”
As 6-foot-2 Ohio State guard Andrew Dakich defended the 6-foot-5 Carr on the perimeter on the play, Buckeyes guard C.J. Jackson watched closely near the foul line. When Carr made his move, dribbling toward the foul line, Reaves snuck behind Williams.
Carr found his teammate, and Reaves finished a two-handed dunk to give the Nittany Lions a 69-68 lead.
“As soon as I did it, I feel like I left my body for a second,” Reaves said. “I was just standing there, just excited. I heard that they called a timeout, so I took advantage of that moment to try to get the crowd into it.”
Carr blocked Jackson’s 3-point attempt at the buzzer to seal the win and send the Nittany Lions to the conference tournament semifinals.
The Nittany Lions trailed 66-62 with less than three minutes to play, but they stayed within striking distance heading into the final minute. After Shep Garner came away with a steal with 16 seconds left, Carr connected with Reaves for the game-winning play.
“I knew he would make the right decision,” Penn State coach Patrick Chambers said of Carr. “That’s why I didn’t call a timeout. Mostly he’s been shooting it. But I knew he would make the right decision.”
