Half-court heave saves St. Cloud State basketball team

  • Updated: November 24, 2012 - 11:55 AM

LAKELAND, FLA. - As it turned out, 0.4 seconds was just enough time for the St. Cloud State men's basketball team.

Kevin Levandoski hit a half-court shot at the buzzer to give the Huskies a 91-89 victory over Florida Southern College on Friday night.

The three-pointer came after St. Cloud State (2-0), playing in a tournament for which Florida Southern is host, blew an 88-85 lead with four seconds to go. Kevin Capers, who led the Mocs (2-1) with 21 points, made two free throws to make it a one-point game with 1.2 seconds left.

The Huskies then threw it away on the inbounds play, and the Mocs, inbounding under their own basket, scored on a tip-in by Cameron Vines with 0.4 seconds remaining.

Executing a play the Huskies have practiced many times, though, Theo Rothstein's inbounds pass landed in the hands of Levandoski, and the 6-0 sophomore guard from Appleton, Wis., turned and hit the winner from midcourt.

Levandoski finished with 15 points, six better than his previous career high. He went 3-for-4 from three-point range. Rothstein added 21 points and nine rebounds for the Huskies and Shaun Jensen had 16 points, five rebounds and five assists before fouling out late in the game.
