The Florida Gators advanced to the Elite Eight on Friday after defeating Wisconsin in a nail-biter of a game that was forced to OT by the Badgers. The Gators’ win was all because Chris Chiozza hit a running three at the buzzer. Just watch this leap of faith.
Chiozza immediately became the man of the night, not just among fans who saw the ending, but also his friends and family. This is what Chiozza’s phone looked like right after he hit the game-winner. It’s so comically long that it needs the “Land of Chocolate” song to accompany the scrolling.

I’m the type of person who gets anxious when my phone’s notifications go wild, so I do not envy Chiozza at all here. I do, however, wish I could hit a game-winner as chaotically beautiful as he did that night.
