Oakland University trailed by two with 0.6 seconds to go against Youngstown State, but the Golden Grizzlies weren't ready to go down easy. 

Oakland coach Greg Kampe knew that the Youngstown State defender would be trailing the inbounder along the baseline, so Kampe sent in a player to draw a foul on the defender focused on a completely different direction. 

The plan worked to perfection, as Oakland's Travis Bader hit the deck and earned two game-tying free throws en route to the Grizzlies’ 96-92 win in overtime.
