Basketball takes a backseat to football on Super Bowl Sunday, but there are still exciting finishes in the college basketball world.

After an 18-2 start to the season, No. 18 Pittsburgh was looking to get back on track against Virginia after losing to No. 17 Duke earlier in the week. The Cavaliers had other ideas.

With less than 10 seconds remaining and the score tied 45-45, Virginia took the ball up the court. Guard Malcolm Brogdon managed to get just enough space from several defenders after catching the pass and hit the game-winning three-pointer to keep the Cavaliers near the top of the ACC.
