No. 18 Saint Louis is a lock to make the NCAA tournament, but St. Bonaventure needs to win the Atlantic 10 tournament to steal an at-large bid. The Bonnies got a big boost on Friday when they knocked off the top-seeded Billikens on a buzzer-beater.

After Saint Louis hit a three-pointer in the final minute to tie the game at 68-all, St. Bonaventure had a chance to stun the college basketball world.

Bonnies guard Jordan Gathers was able to get behind one of his teammates, catch the pass and knock down a three-pointer as time expired to give his team a 71-68 victory.

St. Bonaventure went only 6-10 in conference play during the regular season, but it is just two wins away from sneaking into the Big Dance.
