Buzzer-beaters and late-game heroics make for incredible theater when you’re on the winning side. Texas learned Wednesday just how miserable losing one of these heart-stoppers can be.

Texas Tech’s Mac McClung buried a 19-footer over UT’s Courtney Ramey with three seconds to help the 15th-ranked Red Raiders escape the Erwin Center with an 79-77 victory.

At least, that’s how they’ll tell it in Lubbock over the next few days. The post-game celebration in the visiting locker room was ear-splitting pandemonium. McClung even politely stepped away from ESPN’s post-game interview on national TV to go celebrate.

Talking about pulling one out of the fire. Tech (11-3, 4-2 Big 12) has now won three straight road games for the first time since 1997.
