Dylan Garrity heaved a buzzer-beating 75-foot 3-pointer in overtime for Sacramento State, shocking Big Sky Conference leader Weber State 78-75 on Saturday night at The Nest.

The Hornets (8-11, 4-6) trailed by one when a double technical foul was called on Weber State, giving Mikh McKinney four free-throw attempts. McKinney, who finished with 30 points, sank all four to give Sac State a 75-72 lead with seven seconds left.

Weber State (11-7, 8-2) tied the score as Davion Berry sank a contested 3-pointer with less than a second remaining. Garrity corralled the ensuing inbound pass and swished it from Weber State’s 3-point line, ending the Wildcats’ six-game winning streak.

Garrity finished with 13 points, and Eric Stuteville had 14 with nine rebounds.
