Wild Wednesday sees back-to-back final second finishes

There were two Big Ten men’s basketball games played Wednesday, and both left home crowds heartbroken in the final second of action.

First, Penn State stormed back from a 14-point deficit to tie the game at 75 in the closing seconds. But Indiana’s James Blackmon Jr. ended all hope in Happy Valley to seal a 78-75 Hoosier victory:

Then, Ohio State overcame a 12-point deficit of their own at Nebraska to put themselves in position to win down the stretch. This comeback was completed, as Marc Loving found himself wide open under the basket for an easy game-winner with 0.6 seconds left to cement a 67-66 Buckeye final:

The frantic finishes had Indiana and Ohio State fans feeling some type of way.
