Buzzer-beating layup lifts N. Illinois past No. 14 Buffalo

DEKALB, Ill. (AP) Northern Illinois caught Buffalo flat-footed just before the buzzer.

Reserve Noah McCarty got open in the paint, caught a pass and hit a layup with 2 seconds to play, and the Huskies upset the 14th-ranked Bulls 77-75 on Tuesday night. It was Northern Illinois' first home victory over a ranked team in 47 years.

"I thought the guys put together a complete, 40-minute game," Northern Illinois coach Mark Montgomery said. "I think it was the best game - and I've been here eight years - that I've been a part of. We grew up tonight."
