The Sweet 16 contest featuring the Gonzaga Bulldogs and West Virginia Mountaineers at SAP Center in San Jose, California, was a back-and-forth, entertaining affair, and the game's ending didn't disappoint.

With roughly 27 seconds remaining Thursday and Gonzaga up 61-58, West Virginia had an opportunity to either decrease the deficit to a single point or tie it.

Guard Jevon Carter air-balled his first attempt from beyond the arc, and his second three-pointer of the possession also missed the mark.

Forward Nathan Adrian ran the ball down to give the Mountaineers one last chance to force overtime, but neither Carter nor teammate Daxter Miles Jr. could get a shot off before time expired.

Gonzaga held on to advance to the Elite Eight.
