There was no stopping Oregon's Tyler Dorsey from pulling up for a three-pointer in the dying seconds of the Ducks' second-round NCAA tournament game against Rhode Island on Sunday. 

Dorsey had the game on the line with the ball in his hands, and he wouldn't have had it any other way. With a little space behind the three-point line, Dorsey pulled the trigger and put the Ducks ahead 75-72.

Rhode Island, a No. 11 seed, nearly pulled off the upset but fell short. Oregon, a No. 3 seed, advances to the Sweet 16, where Michigan, a No. 7, awaits.
