When Virginia’s London Perrantes knifed into the lane and attempted a tie-breaking layup late in Sunday night’s first overtime period, it seemed certain he was about to give his team the lead.

Perrantes’ potential game-winning layup bounced around every part of the basket before getting stuck atop the back rim. Referees then ruled the play a jump ball and awarded possession to Virginia Tech.
While the Hokies failed to score on their final possession in the game’s first overtime, they took advantage of their new life in the second extra session. Seth Allen scored a short pull-up jumper with just over three seconds left to give Virginia Tech an 80-78 double-overtime victory over the 12th-ranked Cavaliers.
