Jarred Dixon came up with the ball and connected on a last-ditch heave from half-court to give Missouri State the win.

Missouri State caught quite the break during its 66–65 win over Illinois State on Sunday night.

Illinois State led 65–63 with 7.8 seconds. The Redbirds were inbounding the ball with a chance to put the game out of reach. But it wasn’t meant to be.

The inbounds pass was never completed, leading to the ball dribbling to midcourt, where an epic scramble for a loose ball took place. Missouri State’s Jarred Dixon finally came up with the ball, and from half-court, let it fly.

Dixon managed to get rid of the ball with .1 left on the clock, miraculously coming up with the victory.

The win improved Missouri State’s record to 13–12.
