Where there is a will, there is a way.

And the University of Rochester basketball team had that will.

The YellowJackets pulled off an incredible game-winning play in overtime against their fellow Division III opponent, the University of Chicago, on Sunday.

Rochester was down 76-73 when junior guard Sam Borst-Smith headed to the line with 2.7 seconds left in the overtime period. After making his first of two free-throw attempts, Borst-Smith bounced it off the rim to grab his own rebound and kick it out to teammate Mack Montague, who drained the game-winning three-pointer just as time expired.
