When you’re down a single point and there are more than 3 seconds on the clock, you’d like to be able to get a shot off of a bit better quality that a heave from the far side of halfcourt.

It’s not a dealbreaker, though, as New Mexico State showed Thursday.

The Aggies defeated Grand Canyon 77-75 courtesy of the buzzer-beating toss from sophomore Johnny McCants.

Sure, the shot is great, but how about McCants letting it fly with more than a second left on the clock? Who needs that one extra dribble when you’re confident you can cash in from 50 feet? Not Johnny McCants, that’s for sure.
