VIDEO: Drexel's Frantz Massenat Hits the Shot of the College Basketball Season, Wins Game

Sincere congratulations are in order for the Villanova Wildcats and La Salle Explorers, who, on back-to-back nights, took down the No. 5 and No. 9 teams in the nation in Louisville and Butler.
For Villanova, it was a key conference win in a season that's turning out far better than expected — even if the 'Cats' assist-to-turnover ratio should ultimately prove unsustainable.
And for La Salle, which has made a habit in recent years of playing well out of conference and falling back to Earth in A-10 play, it's the first time the Explorers have beaten a Top-10 team since 1980.
Both wins included a court-storming, but neither included a buzzer-beating 50-footer. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why we're here.
Behold what's very possibly the shot of the college basketball season. 
Drexel looked like it was headed for overtime on Wednesday night when Hofstra's Taran Buie -- who finished with a game-high 29 points -- buried a three to knot the game at 52 with 5.9 seconds to play.
But then Bruiser Flint got out the whiteboard and drew up the classic inbound-to-Frantz-and-let-him-hit-a-step-through-half-court-heave play. It's not quite the picket fence, but Hofstra still got caught watching the paint dry.
After you're done blinking, fix your eyes on Bruiser in the bottom left of the second angle.

Sixers to play on new court design, wear special City Edition jerseys with old school bell

The Sixers announced on Wednesday morning that they'll be unveiling their fourth edition jersey in the near future to be worn on seven tribute nights with a "Spirit of 76" theme to them.

It will include a bell logo on both the jerseys and at center court of the Wells Fargo Center.

"'Spirit of 76,' introduces a new 'bell' logo, inspired by imagery from Philadelphia's 1976 bicentennial celebration, a special center-court logo signed by 76ers full season ticket members, collectible tickets and membership boxes for season ticket members," the team said in a statement.

The team will also unveil three new sculptures at their Camden training facility to go along with the campaign.

“We are excited to announce the ‘Spirit of 76’ campaign as it provides another incredible opportunity to celebrate the proud tradition of the 76ers with the city of Philadelphia, our fans, players and alumni,” said Philadelphia 76ers Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Chris Heck. “The ‘Spirit of 76’ campaign honors the legendary icons who paved the way for this organization, while recognizing the passion and intensity of our fans.”

The City Edition jerseys will join the Association Edition (home), Icon Edition (road), and Statement Edition jerseys this season.
