St.Peter's guard Desi Washington hits buzzer-beating 3-pointer to beat Fairfield for the 3rd time this saason

This blog post is about an incredible and true story about a team in the MAAC conference called the St.Peter's Peacocks and their junior guard named Desi Washington.

St.Peter's went on the road to play Fairfield on January 8 and Washington hit a three-pointer as time expired to help the Peacocks win 56-55. Here's the video.

These two teams had a rematch at St.Peter's on February 25 and Washington made a three-pointer with about two seconds left to win the game 63-62.

Now the two same teams played Thursday night at the first round of the MAAC Conference tournament. The game went to overtime tied at 58.

During overtime, Fairfield scored to make the score 62-62 before Washington hit another game-winning three-pointer.

How does Fairfield let this happen? Washington's third game-winning shot ended Fairfield's season.

What are the chances that a player does this to an opponent? I hope ESPN mentions this and the sports media because this is quite an amazing feat and it probably won't ever happen again in the history of college basketball.
