Lemmons's buzzer-beater lifts Gonzaga

At first, Malcolm Lemmons thought Gonzaga teammate Cedrick Lindsay was going to shoot. Lemmons went to the basket and saw Lindsay's bullet pass whistling his way. He knew the clock was speeding toward zeroes, knew he couldn't risk setting his feet or the game was headed to overtime.
So in one awkward but effective motion, he caught Lindsay's laser and twisted his body into an awkward layup that went through at the buzzer, lifting the third-ranked Eagles to a 63-61 win over O'Connell on Sunday in the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference semifinals before 3,500 at Bender Arena.
